Screen unlocking without password
Status in gnome-screensaver package in Ubuntu:
My screen is unlocking without a password after being locked for an
unknown time period, like a lunch break or overnight. It is not
hibernating or suspending, just locked. If I lock it and immediately
unlock it forces me to use password as it should, otherwise about 40%
of the time it just unlocks to my full session as I left it before
locking. I lock by physically clicking the lock icon in the top right
of the screen. I've not tested by just walking away and waiting.
I originally posted here

Let me know other info you need to help find a fix. This is a major
security issue for me at my location.
