Bug Description

I changed my password from the unity8 desktop session by:
  1. Navigating to Settings->Security->Locking->Lock Security,
  2. Selecting "Swipe",
  3. Selecting "Passphrase",
  4. Then logged out and in again.

Following this I saw some really weird behaviour whereby my UbuntuOne account kept being removed upon trying to install something from the store scope.

I eventually found that my username had been moved to the nopasswdlogin group. On removing myself from the group, things started working again with the store & U1.

So my guess is that by selecting "Swipe" my username is moved to nopasswdlogin, but is not removed upon selecting "Passphrase" again.
