This bug was fixed in the package casper - 1.395
casper (1.395) cosmic; urgency=medium
Set empty live user password on all flavours, this was previously
gdm specific. Also drop systemd unit hack as it wasnt actually
needed (LP: #1761644)

Delete the password for the live session on all flavors
Status in casper package in Ubuntu:
A historical Ubuntu GNOME bug fix deleted the password for the live user. To get around auto-login bugs in gdm. These later carried over to Ubuntu when they switched back to GNOME.
Now seems like the other flavors want this behavior also. It avoids
the password prompts when logging into a TTY for example.
My previous hack from a few years ago of injecting a systemd unit is
no longer required, lets just delete the "blank" password when we add
the live session user in casper.
1. Login to a tty should not require you to press "enter" at the password: prompt (for blank password)
2. Under gnome-shell you should not be able to lock the screen with <super+L> or through the user menu
