[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#855902: Bug#855902: Bug#855902: xfce4: Moving mouse won't bring a locked screen back. Have to use Ctrl-Alt-F2, Ctrl-Alt-F1, which brings the Desktop Manager (such as GDM) login screen.

No, it's a different issue. I can still log in back. The point is, I
used to see a simple password dialog, but now it's lightdm (and I have
to retype my user name).
