Hello, I work for a company with 7000+ desktops using Ubuntu and the fix for this bug brought an annoying "Unlock" button to us. We use cryptographic USB tokens and before this fix we could unlock the screen just puting the PIN code and pressing Enter. Now, after this procedure, appears another button named "Unlock". Besides this, the button is not translated to our language (PT-BR). Thanks.
