Bug#987040: gdm3: Sometimes system locks hard after entering password

Package: gdm3
Followup-For: Bug #987040

I have now found the trigger for the locks: This always happens when I
have a sshfs connection open at the time when going to suspend. The
sshfs connection needs an established vpn, which isn't there when
returning from suspend. As soon as the user logs in (pressing "Enter"
in the screensaver dialog), the unavailable sshfs connection seems to
lock gdm3 completely. It is actually not a complete hard-lock, playing
music when going to suspend just continues after waking up and also
after gdm3 has locked.

It seems that sshfs is known to have this kind of problems (#571005),
but I guess gdm3 should not lock in this (or any) kind of situation ...
