Indeed, when a user is preselected autologin doesn't work, but it kind
of make sense to me actually, since (afaict) that means someone else
already logged in previously, and I would find it weird to log me back
in if I just logged out.

So far, I manage to have an user preselected when restarting lightdm
(wether manually or because I've just logged out of a session), but
password doesn't appear in clear text at all.
