Two things discovered after 12.04.1 LTS upgrade (one may be a bug)

I am in the process of upgrading my systems to 12.04.1 LTS. Three are complete 
one to go.

One of them had the xfce desktop installed one did not. The third one is a 
server, so no desktop.

The one with xfce completed successfully and has xfce, Unity AND GNOME Classic 
installed, by default. It was a plain vanilla install.

The other system has just Unity. This one, I discovered, has a slight problem. 
If you are not successful entering your password at login the result is a ZOMBIE 
task of LightDM for every unsuccessful attempt. These do not get reaped until 
you logout after a successful login. Is this a bug?

I am still trying to get used to Unity...
