Summary0006018: XFCE login prompt does not display immediately, instead shows desktop in the unlocked state
DescriptionThere are two instances where XFCE will, instead of showing the login prompt, show the desktop in an unlocked state revealing whatever was being done last. This eventually will go away and the login prompt will show up again. The two instances where this occurs is when the computer is woke up, and when switching back to the gui after swapping to a virtual console. ctrl+alt+F1-6 then ctrl+alt+f7 typically will leave the unlocked view up longer than when waking up the computer. This can be dangerous if there is sensitive information on the screen when it is locked.
Steps To ReproduceInstall Kali XFCE to a computer, let the computer lock while logged in and then wake it up. Alternatively, let the computer lock and then switch to F5 and switch back to F7.

Haven't see this issue again. I can imagine it was fixed with Xfce 4.16
