Package: lightdm
Version: 1.0.6-3
Severity: normal

For some resons I have some users without password on my system.
They could login via getty, gdm, gdm3 (IIRC), but could not login with lightdm.

In the auth.log there is
Feb 25 15:54:16 vice lightdm: pam_unix(lightdm:auth): auth could not identify password for [guest]

I want them to be able to login without password.
