Can't enter password when fingerprint enabled

After upgrade to F11 I installed fprint and associated packages, enabled my fingerprint reader using system-config-authentication, and scanned a fingerprint through the "Account Information..." dialogue.
On login gdm will accept either a password of fingerprint scan.
However, in both cases, when gnome-screensaver locks I cannot unlock using a password - only fingerprint. While the password entry field is active and can be typed into, the "Unlock" button is greyed out (and carriage return therefore activates "Cancel", which is in focus by default).
If the fingerprint scan repeatedly fails (3 times, I think), the "Unlock" button is enabled and password entry works as expected.
Both the fingerprint scan and password entry should be available as soon as the unlock dialog appears so the user has the option to use whichever is convenient at the time.
