Bug Description

TEST CASE:
1. Log out of the Unity session.
2. Click the gear button to change your next login session to Ubuntu 2D.
3. Enter an incorrect password.
4. Click the gear again to see what session is selected.

What happens:
The greeter forgets your choice and instead resets the login session to whatever you last successfully logged in with.

What should happen:
The greeter shouldn't change your explicit session choice just because you mistyped your password.

Jeremy,

Thank you for reporting this and helping to make Ubuntu better. I attempted to reproduce this tonight using 12.10 (unity-greeter 12.10.0-0ubuntu1) and was unsuccessful. I made a few fake sessions by copying the ubuntu session and changing the name. I had the sessions Fred, Bob, Unity, and Unity-2d. I selected "Fred", logged-in, logged-out, saw Fred was still selected. Then I entered a bad password, Fred was still selected. I repeated this with "Bob" and Unity-2d. Is this still happening for you?

I believe this has been fixed for a while and I didn't realize the bug was still open. Thanks for following up!
