  Password does not unlock screen

Status in gnome-screensaver package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-screensaver

  On some machines I have 10.40 installed on gnome-screensaver does not
  unlock screen with the correct password. With switch user I can go to
  login screen and use that very same password to go back to the Gnome

  I can reproduce this, every time I hit Control+Alt+L screen locks, and
  password does not unlock it. Workaround is to switch user and login
  back to the account with the locked session.
