multiple false password entered notifications

There appears to be a serious bug in the new Mageia 3 just released. After a minute or two I'm bombarded on the desktop with multiple warnings Dialogue Boxes stating: "The password you typed is invalid. Please try again." Closing it is useless! I do not know what is causing this as I have just booted up. This started occurring just after I upgraded from Mageia 2.

Anybody have any ideas to how I can stop this happening?

In the Bug reporting there are already over 20 people who have this problem. In the Bug Report I suggested there to reformat and do a clean install, but someone told me that this doesn't help. I am considering formatting and reinstalling Mageia 2 and waiting for the next edition in 6 months time as I doubt there's a solution.

Solved did a clean install and installed Mageia 3 again.

I just did a clean install a few days ago, and am not experiencing this problem. Might be worth a try.

I didn't have enough space to do an upgrade. Rather than mess abouut I did a fresh clean install, I haven't experienced the problem you describe.
