  login password entry problem

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When I boot my laptop I reach the login screen of ubuntu 14.04.

  I have 3 login id's
  one of which is guest account.
  when I try to type the password in my regular login account the password field does not accept the entry. Then I chenge my language / keyboard settings in top right corner of the screen from english with rupee sign to english uk and back again to english with rupee sign it allows me to type the password in my password field. my password is all caps so i keep the caps lock on.
  i tried with caps lock on and off both but it allows only after tweaking the keybord settings.
