    Yup, having the exact same issue here. Happens for random reason - earlier it was when TimeMachine started backing up. A second ago it was right after I clicked a link from Twitter.

     

    Apple- fix this please. I don't want to go to the trouble of downgrading. Thanks.

    I have a suspicion this has to do with the Gatekeeper stuff. It just happened when an app that's not from he Appstore wanted me to update.

     

    I'm on a MacPro, Early 2008, 2x2.8GHZ Quad-Core Zeon

    12GB Ram

    ATI Radeoh HD 5770 1024MB

    NVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB

    The question is - does Apple even see this? How do we let them know of the problem so it can be remedied sooner rather than later?

    I also have a Mac Pro, not sure what year, but 2008 sounds about when I bought mine. Yes, I have the same issue as you, ML logs me out randomly. Today it has logged me out maybe 10 times. Apple needs to fil this.

    I checked now my configuration. My Mac Pro is a late 2009 model, 16 GByte RAM, two 2.93GHz Quad-Core Intel Xe, 2x NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB.  I have 1 TB drive original with the machine, and 3 drives at 3TB each.

    I'm having a huge problem with Active Directory. Our AD server is set to lock an account after three failed login attempts.

     

    It appears that for some reason when logging in to the network from the login page, you get two tries before being locked out instead of three. Also, when logged in, then logging out and then trying to log back in again, you get one try.

     

    There also appears to be a random, system-wide, issue when authenticating using Active Directory credentials, particularly with modal boxes asking for authentication. Sometimes it will work, other times it will lock the account on the first try EVEN WITH THE CORRECT INFORMAITON.

     

    I've been calling IT all day having them reset my password. They'll never let Mountain Lion in the building if this continues.

     

    NO, I'm not typing it wrong. I'm testing.

    I tried a clean install of Mountain Lion, then migrated Lion account over. Same problem as first attempt.

     

    FYI: 12-core Mac Pro with two graphic cards....

    Ok, this appears to be an issue with the graphics card. What is your graphics card?

     

    Can everyone in this thread post their console logs?

    Same problem here - I'm right in the middle of something and BAM I'm suddenly at the login screen. Three times so far.

     

    I filed a bug report after the first time it happened......
