Re: HowTo: Create a Passwordless / Guest Login (Simple Method)
I am also getting this problem.

At the moment, the only way to unlock the guest account is pretty drastic, such as restarting GDM, which logs out ALL desktop sessions and restarts X, clearly not a good solution.
Any help much appreciated, thanks.
