  signond hangs and uses all CPU resources

Status in “signon” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Today I noticed my CPU fan going crazy and couldn't find any reason at
  first, having pretty much only a browser window open.

  Checking the system monitor, I noticed that signond used up 96% of my
  CPU resources, which caused the problem. It steadily hung at this
  level. Since I have an i7, my laptop still worked fine, I guess
  because it only used up one core.
