After suspension

Small inconvenience but new and annoying:
Machine is Thinkpad x260
uname -a: Linux rwells-x260 4.14.7-300.fc27.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Dec 18
16:06:12 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Desktop: Gnome 3.26.4-1.fc27.x86_64

When the lid is opened on the suspended machine the screen saver appears
and the clock proceeds to update until
the enter key is hit.  Then the clock stops updating for 27 seconds
followed by the login entry dialog appearing.
Then everything is back to normal.
This began right after the upgrade from F26 to F27 and has persisted
through one or two subsequent routine update

LUKS question

I have existing systems with un-encrypted disks.
I have tried unsuccessfully to encrypt them using LUKS.
Has anyone out there been able to encrypt an existing system (after the
fact, so to speak)?


F25->F26 upgrade fingerprint reader regression


I reported the same incident just after F24->F25 upgrade and it was
rectified rather quickly.

Now it happens again after the F25->F26 upgrade.

When entering one's password to dismiss the screen lock the fingerprint
reader is flashing which seems ok.

However after entering the password it is still flashing and remains so
until I run my finger across it.

Seems like it should turn off after a successful login via password.
