Bug Description

Lock screen freezes after big input into password field from keyboard.

Few times I had to hard reset because cleaning service left my headphones on my keyboard for the night at work. When I got back to office in the morning lock screen was not responding. I could not clear password field. could not press anything on keyboard. Mouse was working but clicking on lock screen interface didn't work.
