  autologin fails for administrator user

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I had two user accounts on the machine, an administrator and a normal user.
  I edited a conf file in /etc/lightdm to auto login the unprivileged user, which worked fine. I then deleted the unprivlieged user and changed the config file to autologin the remaining user. This does not work, a password prompt is always presented to this user.
