Hi,

I wanted to try out autologin in Plasma 5. So I went to Systemsettings > Account and there checked the checkbox for autologin for my user. After Apply, I needed to authenticate as root, after which my user account listing disappeared! (It is still in /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, luckily.) Before I start filing bug reports, I'd like to get some feedback about what system is likely the culprit. In my log, I find:
Code:

apr 13 09:17:12 sysoppad systemsettings5[10145]: log_user_manager: 1000

So clearly something failed and my user got ‘uncached’, whatever that means. But who's at fault?
