  Login issue: Lightdm + LDAP + Kerberos

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  lightdm 1.7.15-0ubuntu1, Ubuntu 13.10

  - Local users can login without problems on command line and LightDM
  - Kerberos/LDAP authenticated users can login on command line

  - Kerberos/LDAP authenticated users cannot login with LigthDM. If you
  provide a valid user/password the screen gets blank before you return
  to the login screen. The .xession-errors includes "/usr/sbin/lightdm-
  session: 5: exec: init: not found"

  - If you add init to the users path (e.g., ln -s /sbin/init /bin/init)
  the user does no longer return back to LightDM but gets a blank
  screen. Several errors related to "init" in the .xsession-errors.
  First of them is "init: Failed to spawn upstart-file-bridge main
  process: unable to execute: No such file or directory"

  .xession-errors for both setup attached to this bug report

  No problems with Ubuntu 12.04.
