No user switching

lightdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Since one of the recent updates, I cannot switch users any more.
From the session menu, I select another username, or "Lock/Switch session". But I always get back to my own session.
Pressing CTRL-ALT-F? does not have any effect.

I need to log out and log in as another user to switch accounts.
Currently, Ubuntu desktop is a single-user OS.
