LightDM looses focus

Bug Description

Sometimes after I wake up from suspend, LightDM seems to lost focus to a window in the desktop.
I have a blinking cursor in the LightDM screen, and if I start typing anything the cursor doesn't move, and the only way to bypass this is wait the screen to turn off and on again (here I can type the password).
This also happens when locking the screen.

Description: Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS
Release: 14.04

Lightdm version: 1.10.1-0ubuntu1

How to reproduce:
* Open a window and click on a text box (ex: login form in some web page in a browser).
* Lock the screen
* Try to type your password to unlock it: the cursor blinks but doesn't move at all;
* Wait for the screen to turn off, do something to wake up the screen and login;
* Whatever you typed will be on the text input of the window you had focus (in this example: the login form of the web page)

What was supposed to happen:
* After locking the screen or waking from suspend, I expected that typing my password would unlock the screen.

As a workaround If you click on one of the indicators and click back on the password field you can type your password right away.

This bug could also expose your password to someone looking over your shoulder when you unlock your desktop.
