Reporting bug fix for kscreenlocker to work with libpam-poldi

To those interested,

I just wanted to report that I authored a patch for the KDE screen
locker project so that it would work better with libpam-poldi.

The issue was that entering a PIN that was under 6 characters at the
screen locker would lock up the system when PAM authentication was being
done by poldi.

This is now fixed.  See a link to the patch below:

This problem was previously discussed in the following threads:

For those who use Plasma on Debian, I have requested that the
maintainers there cherry pick this patch to fix the screen locker in buster.
