gnome-shell doesn't give focus to fallback lock screen

Bug Description

I tried running gnome-shell 3.8 with lightdm instead of gdm. I locked the screen with Ctrl+Alt+L. When I tried to enter my password to unlock, no characters showed up but it's still possible to blindly enter the password and unlock -- there just isn't any feedback that GNOME is accepting input.

An alternate workaround is to click Switch User from the unlock screen and enter my password from the login screen which unlocked my screen.

We should fix this bug before having gnome-shell depend solely on libgdm instead of gdm (LP: #1162849).

I think this is unrelated to the libgdm split. I can reproduce it even with the full gdm stack installed.

This is happening in saucy, which doesnt yet have the split gdm package.
