[Bug 7150] live CD locked password, hoary live/install differences

I booted a recent hoary-live-i386.iso, did some work on the computer, selected
"lock screen" from the menu, and left my computer. I returned later and found I
was unable to unlock the screen and resume my session. The xscreensaver prompts
for a password, says "verifying", and then it fails. This is a recent change in
behaviour, previously a user could successfully lock/unlock the screen.
So, how should the live CD handle the default user account and passwords?
Should there be a difference in the user account setup for the live CD and the
install CD? Should an application behave the same way for both the "live" and
I think that the differences between the "live" and "install" versions should be
kept to a minimum. Presently when booting the live CD one is asked for boot
options, language, and keyboard layout. Why not ask for user name and password
