Consistent and Easy to Use Login Screen and Unlock Screensaver

Registered by Jan on 2006-10-05

Ubuntu has three different login screens for (1) first user login, (2) unlocking the screensaver and (3) login as a new user when another users screen lock is active. This three situations could be handled by one single login screen, to provide a much more consistent look and feel.

Additionally, the current system can make it very confusing if you switch users and can lead users to log in twice (very bad!)
