    Sometimes I have no background picture on the lock screen

    Sometimes I have no picture on the lock screen. Just a black background with the time and the date. If I go to Lock screen in Settings and select a different picture the sign-in background changes but lock screen background is still black. The only time I see a background on the lock screen is after restarting or after signing out. If computer returns from sleep or if I lock my computer it is just black with date and time. This has been on going for past few builds. Any ideas?

    Edit: Found on Feedback hub that many others are having the same issue. I also learned from the Feedback hub that if you go to Settings>Personalization>Lock screen and turn OFF Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen then the lock screen picture is displayed correctly. However the sign-in screen will now take on your accent color whatever it may be. It appears that MS has a ways to go before the Lock screen and Sign-in screen sync properly and consistently.
