[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#796241: lightdm-gtk-greeter: confusing placeholder text when greeter-hide-users=true

Package: lightdm-gtk-greeter
Version: 1.8.5-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

With greeter-hide-users=true in lightdm.conf, there are two unlabeled
lines to be seen in the greeter: a focused username input line and a
passwort entry line.  The latter is showing the placeholder "Enter your
password". The user entry line is showing no text, just the cursor.  The
"Enter your password" label can easily been mistaken as label for the
username entry field, forging the user to enter the password there.

The problem is noted in
https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/unstable/GtkEntry.html as follows:

"Note that since the placeholder text gets removed when the entry
received focus, using this feature is a bit problematic if the entry is
given the initial focus in a window. Sometimes this can be worked around
by delaying the initial focus setting until the first key event

I would expect unambiguous labels at both lines, as it was in the wheezy
version (1.1.6, with gtk2).

Best regards,
