dead end when changing user

Bug #1260948 reported by Jürgen on 2013-12-14

lightdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

one user is logged in
after resume another person wants to log in
there are options
<old user>

choosing new sesssion end up in a loggin window for the first user (with two overlapping buttons underneath)

using <strg><alt><f1> .. <f7> doesn't appear to change anything but if you type blind
(<Alt><F1> .. <Login> .. shutdown -r 0
I could reboot the computer.

Whenever this happens one option is to log in (if you have the password) and log this user out. Interesting is that you cannot <Alt><F1> within that session anymore.

After loggin out everything seems to be normal again.

We have sometimes up to three concurrent sessions and maybe it is related to the sequence how the users log out again leaving for example only the last user <Alt> <F9> active.

I have had the overlapping buttons happen to me as well. Very difficult to recover from less a CPU reset
