User change does not select user

Bug #1680935 reported by Manuel on 2017-04-07

Bug Description

If you change the user by the gnome-desktop (click on the gear at the top right) the login screen shows up, but the wrong user is selected. The new user needs to select his name from the list, what is not really user friendly.

Maybe you can change it in a future release. Otherwise, it does not make sense to show user names you can select to change to that account. A generic "change user" would be enough.
