Summary0006456: After locking system, unable to unlock if incorrect password entered

When locking the system, it presents the logon box again. If you inadvertently enter an incorrect password in the username field, it will not allow you to go back and correct the username, and will not allow selection of the password field. I have seen this issue a number of times, and each time I have had to reboot to resolve it.

Steps To Reproduce

Lock computer, input incorrect password once.
