Just to add noise to this thread and became OT: why do not add this kind
of feature in GDM login screen?
This is the (only) place where usually you have to provide your system
password, so IMHO it's a reasonable behavior allow users change this
Of course GDM could need a re-design of its GUI, i.e. allowing users to
change personal information (locale, session, password) _after_ the
authentication, but _before_ the session's start.
I've some ideas about GDM re-design, but of course I've no time and
abilities to implement it :-) I could write a page on live.gnome.org, if
someone have interest.
