Subject: No delay on first wrong password.
From: Joachim Breitner
Date: Tue, 30 Jun 2009 23:19:09 +0200

from a user point of view, Iâd like to get the âyour password is wrongâ
message immediately, at least the first (few) times. For example, when
logging in to the console, when I notice that my password was probably
mistyped, I always switch to another with Alt-Ctrl-F2, which is faster
than waiting for the password prompt to re-appear.

I do see the need for a delay against brute force attacks, but it
wouldnât hurt if the delay was reduced or at first. Is it is possible to
offer that without giving up security, please consider it.
