After our upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04, are users are noticing that the first time they log in, GDM accepts their password, starts a session, and then terminates.  They can usually log in the second time, though sometimes it takes two or three tries.  After a few days of running, a 'ps -eaf' shows stray processes from just about every user, and every login session since the last reboot.

This could be an issue with PAGs and the keyrings, if AFS is storing the PAG in the keyring,
and it is getting lost.
What order do you have the pam afs and keytring modules in all your /etc/pam.d files?

Because this doesn't seem to be widespread Ubuntu problem, and I suspect it has something to do with the interaction between some new aberration of nature in Ubuntu 10.04 (and there are many) and the user's home directories, which are on AFS, and hopefully there is another school using it for their classrooms like we.  Also, people on this group seem to be more helpful, patient, intelligent, and just downright better people :-)
