Well, just use Windows+L to lock Windows computers then... at least this is what I have always been using - you know, 2 buttons instead 3+1 do make difference when you do it every 15 mins or so
I actually can't even reproduce the issue on my systems, but I don't ever use a physical console, everything we do is remote sessions, but I would point out that it's not very enterprise worthy to tell people to change their behavior because of a bug in your products GUI, although I guess the smiley might be giving that away.

Clearly, right now this is non-issue. So as long as the fix is not a single line of code and 5 min of QC time (which I do not know yet), then I would rather spend this time on fixes and features which add a little bit more value to the product...
Well, if you only use the "number of times the problem has been reported" as the metric for prioritizing GUI bugs, well, that's great, but I'm not too impressed by it. Only a very small percentage of people will actually report a bug like that, even if they hit it. Of course it's your choice how to prioritize such an issue, and I have no idea the effort to fix it (it would seem minimal but I don't know), I just feel like fixing issues like this is critical to the perception of a quality product (it's little "polish" things like this that we used to HATE about a competitor's product).

Yeah, probably, of course then you might get complaints from those of us who like to use keyboard shortcuts.
