Package: mate-session-manager
Severity: important
Forwarded: https://github.com/mate-desktop/mate-session-manager/pull/114
Version: 1.12.1-1

There is a security issue with user switching via the logout dialog.

The session does not get locked when user switching is requested via  
the logout dialog. However, this should be enforced.

I proposed a patch upstream, that I will provide via Debian's  
mate-session-manager package within the next hours.
