Bug Description

When I unlock the screen after it has been locked by light locker the session-cleanup-script of lightdm get's called. I used to use the session-cleanup-script to umount some volumes on logout. I don't want to umount the volumes on lock or unlock.

Maybe this is related to lightdm's #1249515 and might actually be a bug in lightdm!?

As you mentioned, it should actually be LightDM doing this, light-locker doesn't do anything special when unlocking a session.

Maybe Robert has got an idea what's up with that.

Confirmed. The problem is when you authenticate in a greeter it starts a session to do the authentication with PAM. The cleanup is being called for this session (which is thrown away when authentication is complete). This is not the correct behaviour.
