(having not looked at the bug)
Are you sure it's not a ConsoleKit interaction making the session think
your user isn't at the console?
Only if ConsoleKit is keeping per user-state. If I login at the
console as any other user I get the Lock Screen menu item.
I just tried moving aside my home directorory, deleting my userid,
removing everything in /tmp and /var/tmp, rebooting
creating a new userid with the same name (but different user and group
numbers), and it still has no Lock Screen!!!
Something is keeping information about userid "ellson" outside of
/home/ellson, but what?
