Are you by any chance trying to switch users from the Unity lockscreen (which does not offer the choice of sessions, since it's run from within a session) rather than the login screen of the greeter?

@bregma: nope - I just hit this on a fresh trusty install - though I assumed it was a "oh no, they broke xsession support again" until I noticed in the logs that it was scanning all of the session types... you just get nothing when you click on the white circle, unless you pick a different user than then come back.
