Screen won't redraw when nologin-monitor window vanishes

Upstream bug:


This was initially observed on granola. I couldn't repro it, but just observed it on 2 760s in the wild today.

I... have no idea what's going on, since this is essentially "window.hide()" not working. It has to be a PyGtk?/GTK bug.

To clarify, I saw this on m56-129-2 and -3. Geoff said he might debug and try to repro this. I still can't repro it, but here's my current bad idea:

  • Status changed from new to development

Geoff tracked this down to stupidity involving gnome-screensaver. Committed in r25359 and built in gdm-config 1.31 now in -dev
