GDM wrong password, then cannot login with correct password

Recently I found some problem, not sure what is the reason. I am using Xfce with GDM. This happened after I change my rc.conf gdm to systemd.
If I typed my password wrongly, then the gdm will provide error message. Then, if I tried again, with the correct password, it will said I am login, as usual. But the problem is there is no further response go to Xfce. As a result, I need to go to upper right hand button to restart the computer (because cannot logout). And, because want to reboot, gdm will ask for the administritative privillege for the password, so, I need to enter the password (not the root, but sudoer) and restart.

Yes it's a bug in GDM. I don't know if it's a distro specific bug or an upstream bug, so I reported it here: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/32967
