Alain, you really need to find yourself a woman. You have way too much time on hand.
Beastie7, thanks for the advice.

I assume you are experiencing this bug: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=256454I am running FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE. After I login to GNOME 3, it locks the screen. Then when I enter my password, it says authentication failure. Then when I try and enter my password again, I can't enter my password - I type but nothing shows up.
What could be causing this problem?

It certainly looks that way when you have just installed FreeBSD on a PC, followed the basic installation instructions to the letter and get locked out following a reboot.It appears FreeBSD developers don't actually test what they build. I have installed FreeBSD and GNOME and X Window System exactly as per the instructions, yet it doesn't work!
Don't hold your breath:will have to wait for a rollback of accountsservice-0.6.55 to accountsservice-0.6.42 .
Rolling back is surely an option but there is an CVE that got fixed in the committed version. If we roll back the update, we need to make sure the vulnerability is still patched.
Unfortunately, I don't have the necessary time to investigate and prepare a suitable patch.
pkg add -f https://pkg.freebsd.org/FreeBSD:13:amd64/release_0/All/accountsservice-0.6.42.txz
pkg lock accountsservice
Works just fine.
