If a user logs in via lightdm, then his user name is supposed to be
remembered for the next login, so he doesn't have to enter the name 

If somebody else wants to login, then the new has to select "Other..." 
and to enter his name. On the next login session he is the new default 
user. This is the part that doesn't work. The very first user name is 
shown again.
