switch user doesn't works properly after locking the screen

Bug Description

I lock the screen, gnome-screensaver starts and I choose to switch user. Gnome-screensaver displays a list of users. I select one user and ask to switch, GDM starts and ask me again witch user I want to login, GDM should only asks for the password of the user selected in gnome-screensaver's list.

Confirming. It would be nice if we just asked for a password after selecting the user, but if we *must* show a complete gdm screen, why not forget about the "switch to user"-sub-dialog and go to gdm immediately?
