Description Viktor Jancik 2015-08-03 10:46:52 EDT
Description of problem:
After you lock your screen, while having multiple workspaces in use. Then log back into the same account, all the windows are gone, as if a new session was started. All the previously open programs are still running, but their windows can't be accessed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Sometimes with multiple workspaces.
Not sure if I managed to reproduce it without using multiple workspaces.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch a lot of applications, (Browser, terminals, documents), use at least 2 workspaces.
2. Lock your desktop, log back in with the same user.

Actual results:
All your windows are gone, the applications are still running (processes).

Expected results:
All your windows are there where you left them.

Additional info:
An interesting detail is, that if you also lock this new session, then try to shut off the computer from the lock screen, it displays a warning, saying that Multiple users are logged into the computer and lists them as 2 distinct users:
