Package: xfce4-power-manager
Version: 1.4.1-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I installed Jessie, using a dual-boot configuration (Jessie, Wheezy
(7.7)) with a shared /home.  I then tried testing suspend/resume and
hibernate/resume.  The checkbox (in the power manager preferences) to
lock the screen is selected.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I suspended the system from the logout dialog, waited a few seconds,
then pressed a keyboard key to resume.

I hibernated the system from the logout dialog, waited a few seconds,
then pressed the power button to reboot/resume.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

My desktop reappeared.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

I expected the display to be locked.

I have verified that the screen lock does work if I invoke it manually.

With Wheezy I don't normally use the logout dialog to
suspend/hibernate.  Instead, I invoke suspend/hibernate from the power
manager icon in the systray; when resuming, I get a locked screen.
If I use the logout dialog to suspend/hibernate, I do not get a locked

But in Jessie there does not appear to be a power manager icon, so the
logout dialog appears to be the only way to suspend/hibernate. 

I marked the severity "important" because of the security implications
and lack of workaround.

This could be the same as 739871, but since I wasn't sure, I thought it
best to file a new bug.
