[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#884550: regression(?) in greeter-hide-users=true behavior

Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 2.0.3-1

After my latest upgrade/reboot, the behavior of lightdm has changed.
Previously, on fresh boot and lock screen I would be
presented with a username/password entry dialog with empty username,
empty password, and focus on username.  The new behavior has
username pre-populated and focus on password.  (Is this more likely
to be lightdm-gtk-greeter or lightdm itself?)

My understanding is that greeter-hide-users=true is intended to not
give any indication of the valid users on the machine, whether
currently/previously logged in or not.  (If I am in error here,
please accept my apologies and close the report.)  I think I am
using an unmodified stock debian config,

root at prolepsis:~# lightdm --show-config
   A  greeter-session=lightdm-greeter
   A  greeter-hide-users=true
   A  session-wrapper=/etc/X11/Xsession

   A  /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/01_debian.conf
   B  /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

My latest upgrade went from 2.0.2-1 to 2.0.3-1, but the previous
upgrade cycle did not involve a reboot, if that would have been
necessary to get the 2.0.2-1 version running.
