[Bug 577219] [NEW] named switch user does not allow to return to current user


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: indicator-applet

I refer to to panel menue where i can choose different actions as "guest
session", "Log Out..." or "Switch From <user>...". Additional users are
listed there by their name. If i click on such an entry, a new login
dialog appears (such like the normal gdm, but this time only with the
previously selected user). After specifying the correct password, the
new session for this user starts. If i now choose "Log Out..." from the
same panel menue, the screen turns just black.

It is not possible to switch to another tty by pressing CRTL-ALT-Fx. The
only way to get out of this situation is to power off.

This problem does not occour if

 1. i choose "Switch From <user>"
 2. select the desired user in the gdm dialog
 3. select "Log Out..."

Now the password is requested for the previous user.

System is an Laptop Acer Extensa 5635Z
