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

Thanks, I keep watching the upstream bug.
Please push 0.4 into the repos (at least updates-testing)
Please keep in mind that Fedora is a volunteer effort. If you like to help out, please read https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/Join
I'd be happy to make you co-maintainer.
The reason why I didn't yet update lxdm is bug 716100.
Thanks very much for response!
I'm not sure if I'd have enough time to be a co-maintainer (how much time do you need to devote to it, normally?). But I definitely want to help you push this one through, this bug is causing me a lot of grief!

Works pretty well. One issue I've noticed is related to a non-standard boot procedure I'm using -- when booting without initramfs, mouse cursor stays invisible on the 1st login. If I log in and log out, cursor appears correctly. Sounds like it should be a separate bug, though
