I've had trouble with switch user for the last 2 years at least. For a long time the option was gone because of some deep regression. Now that it's back, it doesn't work. Activating 'Switch user' gives a black screen (no mouse).

From the syslog:

In the syslog I also have a lot of:

sddm-greeter: file:///usr/share/sddm/themes/ubuntu-theme/components/ActionButton.qml:62: TypeError: Cannot read property 'longDuration' of null
sddm-greeter: file:///usr/share/sddm/themes/ubuntu-theme/components/ActionButton.qml:78: TypeError: Cannot read property 'shortDuration' of null

I have tried changing theme, but no change.
