I was logged into my regular user account, and decided I needed to do some stuff in console. So I hit ctrl+alt+backspace to kill KDE and drop to terminal. Soon as it dropped, I hit su, and started entering my password. But before I even finished typing the su password, it sort of crashed akonadi and suddenly I'm in root. Here's the lines exactly as they are on my console (its on another computer), swapping out my real username for myusername:
root@navi:/home/myusername# naApplication 'akonadiserver' exited normally...
notice the 'na' before the word Application, thats where I started to type in my root password. I know I couldn't have typed in the password without realizing it here, because I mistyped it - it should have begun with 'an' instead. That 'exit' announcement there appeared just as I began typing.
The segment of output I gave there is what shows after all the stuff that normally appears when you exit out of the WM the way I did.
So is this a known bug or did I find something new? Or is there a non-bug explanation?
