Switch-User fails for kde

Switch-User doesn't seem to work for KDE.
I login with kde as my desktop. Then I select switch-user from the
application menu. A popup pops up warning me that this will start a
new desktop. I select the button to go ahead. The screen goes blank
for a few seconds. Then the lockscreen prompt asks me for the password.
I enter it and am back where I was before.
If I login with gnome as the desktop, the switch-user works as expected.
However, at least once, I did the following:
1. login with gnome as desktop.
2. switch-user and login with kde as desktop.
3. attempt switch-user from second desktop. The result was that
the first desktop crashed and I couldn't access any of the
virtual terminals with alt-ctl-F#. Typing alt-ctl-F3, for example
gave me a botched screen (as did most other atl-ctl-F#). With the
botched screen, I could still return to my kde desktop with atl-ctl-F8.
I'm using a fresh install of F11 for X86_64. This has occurred on
two different systems (the only ones I've tried). On one I'm using
the radeon driver, on the other a nouveau, so it isn't that likely to
be a video driver problem.
Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?
