  Ubuntu 14.10 lockscreen requires password for passwordless accounts

Status in gnome-screensaver package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Orignally running Ubuntu 14.04 and upgraded to 14.10.
  After Upgrade each time one of the "passwordless accounts" is logged in - once the lock screen for said account is displayed, either though manual lock or from timeout, it requires a password.  Pressing enter (I.E. input no password) results in "Incorrect Password" being displayed.

  There appears to be no way back into this account.
