This bug was fixed in the package gdm3 - 3.28.0-0ubuntu2

gdm3 (3.28.0-0ubuntu2) cosmic; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/0001-libgdm-Don-t-unref-a-connection-that-s-in-use.patch,
    Cherry-pick two patches from the 3.28 branch. These fix a refcounting bug
    in the GDM Client object, which had meant that the DBus connection was
    being disposed too early in some cases, particularly when logging in after
    a failed attempt. The symptom of that was that the system hung on a
    "blank" screen. (LP: #1766137)
