[Bug 1072846] Re: can't select user from "User Bar" on live image

Testing with the "User Bar" theme:

When you create an additional user (say "test", password "test") with
default settings (groups etc.) in the "User Management" KCM, (only) this
user is displayed on the login screen, can be selected and is able to

"kubuntu" user ID: 999
"test" user ID: 1000

-> Assumption (note: I do not really know LightDM/AccountsService (config)):
The login screen hides users with UIDs below 1000 (to hide system users), which includes "kubuntu".
The minimum UID of users to show might come from /etc/login.defs via accountsservice (which overrides /etc/lightdm/users.conf's minimum-uid setting, according to its header comment); see accountsservice's src/daemon.c (this is just a guess though!).
