Re: [Bug 1322275] Re: lightdm sessions started by dm-tool lock (or a session locker) never get closed


Silly me, I had overlooked the fact that we aren't using the same
greeter. I've got [SeatDefaults]greeter-session=unity-greeter in
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf. So of course your solution didn't work for
me. (I need to give users a choice of desktop sessions, and found unity-
greeter to be better at remembering a user's last session.)

You may have found a valid workaround for GTK greeter users;
unfortunately I cannot switch to it.

  lightdm sessions started by dm-tool lock (or a session locker) never
  get closed

Bug description:
  dm-tool lock starts a new lightdm greeter (for unlocking) and a new
  logind session. After unlocking the greeter disappears, but the logind
  session never closes. loginctl session status c24 reports something

  This results in an accumulation of stale lightdm sessions after using
  e.g. a session locker for a while.

  I get this issue on a freshly installed and fully updated Xubuntu
