I seem to have fixed version now. It does not work for me any different
from the previous version. Nothing happens while trying to change user or
log in with different user account. After trying I can get back to login
screen but then only way to login is boot.

>   [ Description ]
>
>   Due to a refcounting bug, a GDBusConnection was getting disposed when
>   it was still required. The symptom of this was that you couldn't log
>   in on the second attempt if you'd got your password wrong on the first
>   attempt. All you'd see is a blank purple screen and mouse pointer
>   only.
>
>   [ Test case ]
>
>   1. Boot to GDM
>   2. Click your username
>   3. Type the wrong password a couple of times, pressing enter after each
> time
>   4. Type the right password
>
>   If the bug is happening, after 4. the system hangs at a blank screen
>   with the mouse cursor. If you then switch to a VT or otherwise connect
>   to the machine, you can examine the journal and you'll see a
>   G_IS_DBUS_CONNECTION failure.
>
>   [ Fix ]
>
>   Marco and I worked upstream on this fix. We found out that there was a
>   problem like this-
>
>   The GdmClient has a shared GDBusConnection for its operations. The
>   first time  someone calls for it, it is created and stored in the
>   object's private structure. Subsequent calls return *a new reference*
>   to this same object. It turned out that the asynchronous method to get
>   the connection was accidentally unreferencing its object before giving
>   it to the caller if it was returning an already-existing connection.
>
>   For this to work properly, we need to nullify the pointer we stored
>   when the connection goes away, so we know when to make a new one.
>   There were some cases where we didn't add the weak references required
>   to do that. Those are also fixed.
>
>   [ Regression potential ]
>
>   Now we share connections more than we did before. We also more
>   carefully track when to clear our object. If we got this wrong, we
>   might end up leaking the connection or dropping it in even more cases.
>
>   [ Original report ]
>
>   WORKAROUND: After typing an incorrect password, click Cancel, then
>   click your name, then enter your password again.
