The Release Notes at 
only explicitly mention auto updates and the network app, but once one 
realizes that a given problem is due to a non-starting app, and that its 
startup location is /etc/xdg/autostart, then one can apply the 
workaround the Notes point to and expect results.  Hence your bug with 
the screen locker.

But we've seen how painful it can be to string together the necessary 
realizations, when finally the light dawns and angels sing.
