Unlocking existing session needs two attempts after selecting Switch User

Bug Description

This has been occurring during the Xubuntu post-install test. It's not the same as Bug #1776475, as it's not necessary to have logged in as another user (or even for another user to exist) for the problem to happen.

My sequence of actions is:

*Create new user.
*Open a program (usually Thunar or Terminal).
*Lock session.
*Click on "Switch User". <-- This is all that's necessary to trigger it.
*Enter password to unlock my own session.
*Then there's a delay and screen goes black, then the unlock prompt appears again.
*The second time, my session unlocks.

This particular report is from a QEMU/KVM vm, but it's also been happening on a bare-metal install.
