[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#722317: lightdm is not usable with ldap, tries to lookup the whole tree after typing in the username

Package: lightdm
Version: 1.6.0-3
Severity: important

Tried lightdm with lightdm-gtk-greeter and lightdm-kde-greeter, 

the probem is very similar:

on the system I have configured ldap with 500+ users

after typing in the field the username, gtk-greeter freezes and in the console I can see messages like that:

 2013 Sep 10 09:16:54 myhostname key "userX" not found in map source(s)

after a while I can type in the password and login to the system

the same happens with kde-greeter - it takes some minutes to start the Xscreen and than I have a line of usernames in alphabetical order going to nowhere bihind the screen ( obviously 500+ users don't fit )
After installing accountsservice package gtk-greeter works, but in kde-greeter I get only one user and can't select others.

I think there is no need to generate user list when ldap or other directory system is setup.
