Comment 15 for bug 194645

So it seems to be clear that autologin is causing trouble, but does anyone
know what exactly is the cause of the bug? What makes layout switching not
to work with autologin? It would be nice to know to try to find a solution,
I'd really like to be able to use both autologin and layout switching...
