    new logon screen image causes reset of password requirement on wakeup

    Every week or two there's a new logon screen image, with the question "Like what you see" or something close to that.

    At the same time as this new image appears, the setting for requiring a password on wake up,

    (via -> power options, choose what the power buttons do, change settings that are currently unavailable)

    changes from don't require a password to require one. Is there a way to stop this from resetting - or sans that, is there a way to stop downloading a new image as that seems to be the trigger that resets my password setting.
