I was used to having more than one KDE sessions for several users open at one time with KDE / FC7. When I needed to login to another session I used 'Switch User' and after that I could witch between the open sessions by pressing [ctrl][alt][f7] or [ctrl][alt][f8] and so on...
With KDE / FC9 I cant even login to a second session because I do not get a login menu when selecting 'Leave' and then 'Switch User' in the KDE menu. Instead I get a run dialog with the title 'Switch User' but no other suggestion as how to select another session or user.

Can someone please explain what the consequences of changing Severity from 'normal' to 'wishlist' are ???
Or maybe even better... send me a link to information on the subject of bug classification that is used here.
I don't think there are any consequences, per se. it just helps developers to sort the reports. I think wishlist items are unlikely to be worked on during a feature freeze (which we won't have for a few months)... but even that isn't always the case ;)
with fc9 and KDE 4.1.0 "switch user" simply locks the current user out, exactly like "lock".
I can confirm, that "switch user" does not provide a dialog with which you can start a new session how it used to work in kde 3.5.
I really miss this feature.
and yet i use this feature at least weekly, sometimes several times a week.
i know this works in trunk due to that; please report this upstream.
I opened a bug for fedora 9
works fine here too (... I cannot reproduce the problem anyway)
Solution: make sure you use kdm and NOT gdm ;)
This seems to solve the problem and thus indeed WORKSFORME as well.
Forgot to say thanks to Martin,
For I now also (think I) understand now what reporting upstream means... |-)
This got implemented for GDM in kdebase-workspace trunk (for 4.6) now, see bug 186198.
