Public bug reported:

* When an external, encrypted harddrive is connected to my laptop's
docking station, sometimes after switching users or logging back in
after a suspend, the gnome-shell password dialog is asking for the
harddrive's password for decryption.

* When entering the password and hitting enter, pressing the continue
button, or pressing the cancel button, I expect the dialog to close or
in case of a wrong password to stay open and tell me so.

* Instead the dialog box does not react. It is not possible to close or
remove it. I have to parallely log in as another user and do 'sudo kill
-HUP <pid of first user's gnome-shell>' and log back in as the original

The problem is known upstream and I have identified two patches, which I
believe fix this problem:
