Etch has really been chafing my hide lately... was pretty usable for
months, but now with them approaching RC2, they keep breaking stuff like
NIS, tbird, rdesktop - Xorg is acting really weird too, lagging down the
system... If I could stay away from it for a while, I sure would.
Have you filed a bug report with them? Its entirely possible that the
problem is a bug... unless you see in the errata or the 2.0 -> 2.2
update notes that the auth subsystem has changed.
I cant wait for etch to release. But right now, its painful to use.
