I guess that Chris refers to the fact that if you are logged in, and
want to switch to another user (that already is logged in), after
locking the screen, and pressing "New Login" first you'll have to enter
the users password in lightdm, and then when logged in the xscreensaver
is automatically active, and you'll have to enter the same password
there again for the screensaver.

I have tried both switch-to-user, and switch-to-greeter, and have the
same result in both cases. It would be nice if you'll only needed to
enter the password once...
