This is a security hole in my opinion and should be plugged by editing the lock screen ui layout:
#find these objects and set the visible property to false
object class="GtkLabel" id="note-tab-label"
object class="GtkLabel" id="auth-username-label>
object class="GtkLabel" id="auth-realname-label"........
zenity is a nice utility as part of the gnome window manager that allows you to script from bash and retrieve the input from the user. It could also be helpful in just notifying a user when they login with a popup window.
I'll give an overview of what's available with zenity:
--calendar Display calendar dialog
--entry Display tex........
You can search for this bug and it seems like it may be related to ecryptfs and is many years old.
The symptoms are that you return to the computer and the screensaver was active or the screen was asleep/black and it doesn't seem to come back. But you check by SSH the computer is running fine and are frustrated you'll lose your running programs and have to reboot.
There is a simple solution:
Ctrl + Alt + F1
Ctrl +Alt + F8
