6334271: Partial Login Failure Occurs After Canceling First Login Attempt

Description: On newly-installed systems with no previous login session, when you log in as the root user, a screen is displayed, giving you the choice of the Solaris Common Desktop Environment (CDE), or the Sun JavaTM Desktop System (Java DS). If you click Cancel, the system resets to the dtlogin screen. The Solaris CDE and JDS desktop login choices are not displayed on subsequent attempts to log in to system as the root user. Instead, after a moment, the screen resets to the dtlogin screen, preventing you from logging in to the system as the root user.

Workaround: Download and apply the latest revision of patch 119279 or install at least the Solaris 10 6/06 OS.
