Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1017893
"Window List" extension sometimes visible on lock screen
Last modified: 2013-11-07 07:39:17 EST
Description of problem:
When locking the screen while the "Window List" extension is enabled, sometimes the window list and workspace switcher remains visible and usable on the lock screen. This means that someone has the option of closing windows in the session without unlocking the screen.
This seems to mostly happen when the gnome-shell has been restarted (either manually or by crash-recovery).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Window List extension and enable it using extensions.gnome.org or the GNOME Tweak Tool.
2. Hit "alt-f2", type 'r' and hit enter
3. Lock the screen
The window list remains visible on the lock screen and windows can be closed without entering the user's password.
The lock screen should not show the window list.
Going into the tweak tool and disabling/re-enabling the extension restores it to the expected behavior.
Linking this to the GNOME upstream bug report.

I'm afraid that bug is unrelated.
Could you provide the relevant session log for the window-list issue? Something like "journalctl _SYSTEMD_SESSION=$XDG_SESSION_ID -b | grep 'JS LOG'" should do the job ...
This was apparently fixed in GNOME 3.10.1. I can no longer reproduce it with
Marking as CLOSED/CURRENTRELEASE.
