Can't login when screen is locked (sometimes)

Bug Description

Sometimes, when I lock the screen, and then after a while, try to move the mouse to enter my password and get back to what I was doing, I only see a blank (black) screen with the mouse pointer. I didn't manage to get the login box to appear. I have to restart to resume work, or otherwise, open a terminal session.

This doesn't always happen; it usually works fine. I'd say it does that with a probability of around 10%
