Bug Description

[ Description ]

New upstream release in the stable series that bionic is tracking.

[ QA ]

We have a GNOME MRE so upstream's fixes don't need to be explicitly verified.


1. Regular login
2. Auto-login
3. Fast user switching
4. X and Wayland
5. Launching different sessions

[ Regression potential ]

It's the program which logs you in to your session - the consequences could be severe up to and including nobody being able to log in using gdm.
