<fill me in with explanation of severity and frequency of bug on users and justification for backporting the fix to the stable release>
lightdm-gtk-greeter has been broken out from the lightdm package into a separate branch. A fix, identical with the fix in the lightdm MP for Oneiric that this bug report links to, has been committed upstream into the lightdm-gtk-greeter branch. However, the new branch has not yet been packaged for Precise; please see bug #918604. Consequently the fix will make it into Precise once lightdm-gtk-greeter has been packaged.
<fill me in by pointing out a minimal patch applicable to the stable version of the package.>

The greeter of LightDM in Xubuntu Oneiric, is almost completely translated. When you install the packages that are currently still in Proposed, anyway. But not the item "Password:".
This happens even in languages for which LightDM has been fully translated (100 %). In my case: Dutch. So the item "Password:" is somehow untranslatable now.
At the request of Sebastien Bacher, I've forked this bug from this previous bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/868613
I should add that I'm using the LightDM packages from Proposed, which fix most of the translation issues, but not this final one.
According to Robert Ancell in the previous bug report, lightdm-gtk-greeter should pull it's translation of the item "Password:" from PAM: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lightdm/+bug/868613/comments/12
But it doesn't do so: PAM has been fully translated into Dutch as well, but still no translation for the item "Password:" in lightdm-gtk-greeter.
