Xorg doesn't start when User Password is not set on Ubuntu -> fixed in versions greater than 5.0.20

Description

Host: Windows 10 - 64bit (10586.218) Guest: Ubuntu 16.04 - 64bit Virtualbox: 5.0.18 with 5.0.18_106667 Additions

Hello,

my normal settings for User Accounts in Ubuntu are: I use a password and automatic Login (Screenshot 1.jpg) For test reasons i deleted my password and switched automatic login off (Screenshot 2.jpg)

After a Ubuntu restart with these settings the Xorg Server didn't come up any more. After I uninstalled the Guest Additions from the terminal the Xorg Server started again.

I reproduced the behaviour a few times. With no password and automatic login off and the guest additions installed, I can not start Ubuntu.

I can't reproduce this with the latest<1> Additions - could you give them a try?

  • Summary changed from Xorg doesn't start when User Password is not set on Ubuntu to Xorg doesn't start when User Password is not set on Ubuntu -> presumed fixed in versions greater than 5.0.20

Reproduced something similar - the latest Additions test build<1> should fix it, though I would appreciate confirmation.
