Comment 2 Tony Blackwell 2019-06-16 11:25:40 CEST
I confirm this behaviour, with the additional comment that time for a root login can be substantially shorter than 90 sec.  I'd estimate about 30 sec; (at times not quite enough to open MCC, go to boot and change display manager...)

It is true for root.  I've not been able to demonstrate it for normal users, as for me but 24959 prevents normal user login at all via XDM - login fails instantly with login dialog restarting.  Very short login time!

Should be fixed in xdm-1.1.12-3.
