      Ah, so it's been a known issue since 1999. [1] I wonder why they kept
      it at status condidential until recently.

      [1]:http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22183

      This issue is somewhat like saying that a trusted user-installed
      native Windows or Linux application can spoof the Windows Control
      Panel or the Nautilus, and get the user into a trap. Well, of course,
      it can! So?

      Just like the OS, the browser is a programming environment now. Sounds
      scary? Use Lynx.

        The PAM conversation works properly with gdm. The
        problem is only with kdm,xdm.
