Bug Description


occasionally when I lock my screen there is not prompt for entering the password presented. Therefore, I cannot unlock the screen anymore.
The only thing displayed is my Username in a frame, but not the username itself.

There are two ways to workaround the bug. Either rebooting the maschine or suspending it(for which I used another bug in the pwer management that enables me to suspend the maschine anyway). In the latter case a new login screen is displayed, very often with a textfield to enter the password

Please notice that this is only one bug in a series of issues with logging in in lightdm. I expect the issues to be interrelated and therefore sugest to have a look on the other reports as well, which a avaliable through my profile. I will provide direkt links later.
