I'm really at loss here. I will try to explore more but seems that most of options are exhausted. If there is anything else, I'll ask, still believe it is due to some misconfiguration than anything else. I cannot reproduce it at all.

What is your configuration? Running Gnome3?

Sorry about before, I'm not familiar with gdm3.

Can you have a look at settings in Login window preferences, it should be in the main menu?
You mentioned that you have arch available, so instead walking you through, can you check out the differences between the two?

Ok.

You're switching users from panel? I just stumbled on this, admittedly it is not a bug in gnome3 or gdm3 but its a hint:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/lightdm/+bug/904006

It happens in MATE or Gnome3 or both?

It happens in MATE as well as Gnome3 in my LMDE.

The link you gave kinda similar to my problems so ITS a SECURITY ISSUE AFTERALL. But I don't understand how come ArchLinux Gnome3 dont have such problem it works there. maybe something is missing in LMDE.

Bug or a feature, depends. It is fast user switching afterall:)
Personally, I see it doing exactly what it is supposed to do.

Anyway, you reported it to https://bugs.launchpad.net/linuxmint?
