[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#861329: Lock Screen Issues

I'm not sure if my issue is related or not but since there hasn't been any
updates to yet i figured i might as well start here at least.

Lock screen does one of two undesirable behaviors for me when initiated
either through the menus or a commandline.

1) session is terminated instead of locked (all applications closed). This
sometimes means having to enter my username and password twice. Sometimes i
only have to enter it once but either way all the old applications are gone.

2) session terminates and greeter window never reappears. I am left with a
black screen, and a blinking cursor going abnormally fast. The Ctrl-Alt-Fx
keys do not work and the only possible option is to hit the reset button

I'm not all that well versed on reading the logs but there are several
errors present:

lightdm user_get_uid assertion 'user != NULL' failed

Error using VT_WAITACTIVE 7 on /dev/tty0: Interruped system call
org.a11y.atspi.Registry XIO: fatal IO error 11
