    Alright, I'm still doing some testing of the general case, but one thing that I found that needs testing from others is:

    If you: 1.) Select a custom lock screen background picture, 2.) Enable "Do not display last user name", 3.) Enable "Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete" in netplwiz.exe, 4.) Enable "Show lock screen background picture on the sign-in screen" in Personalization -> Lock screen.

    In this arrangement, what happens when you hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and select "Switch User" (don't use other methods to get there, make sure to specifically use Ctrl+Alt+Delete)?
    Which background do you see for the Ctrl+Alt+Delete screen, and which background do you see for the sign-in screen? For me, I get the cave/beach background for both, and in rare cases I'll get a solid blue background. Neither of these match my settings. If you guys get similar results, how might someone go about changing these? Is this not a bug?

    I'm seeing the background picture I selected for both the lock and sign-in screen with those settings.

    Hmm, then this could be the root of the issue that I'm experiencing. My guess is that since the standard lock screen doesn't appear when running Switch User from Ctrl+Alt+Delete (this is independent of whether "Requires users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete" is enabled), the buggy state of my backgrounds isn't getting reset to whatever I newly select (as having the Lock screen run seems to initialize the new settings). So, these two remain stuck with the cave/beach background. I wonder if I could have the system run the Lock screen app in the background as a scheduled task while the Switch User screen is displayed, which might get it to become unstuck. I'll have to try that, though I don't have much faith in it working. Anyway, really, really weird.
