This report splits out the issue described in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1382001#c5 to its own report, as it is distinct from #c4 in that report. kparal's reproduction steps, starting from a current Fedora 25 KDE installation:
Only black screen instead of login screen is shown, if user1 logs out. Reproducer:
1. create user1 and user2
2. boot the system
3. log in with user1
4. switch to user2
5. switch to user1
6. log out user1
7. see only black screen, no login screen. However, you can manually switch to TTY2 to see that user2 session is still running. So this is just the login screen being hung.
I have reproduced this with both qxl and modesetting drivers after an install of Fedora-KDE-Live-x86_64-25-20161107.n.0.iso . https://github.com/sddm/sddm/pull/735 , which is in scratch build http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=16279725 , appears to fix this in testing.
I am applying the 'accepted blocker' decision from #1382001 to this; for now we must consider it to apply to both bugs.

Dennis claimed not to be able to reproduce this on bare metal, but I could, no problem.
I'm doing a 0.14.0-6.fc25 build with the fix for this, plus all rdieter's theme fixes between -1 and -5. Technically we should really only build a 0.14.0-1.1.fc25 with this patch on top of -1, but I really can't deal with the git work and frankly we should pull rex's theme fixes anyway, because they make it look a lot better. If there turns out to be a bad bug we can revert the theme stuff in a -7.
