Although the bug has been reported more than one year ago, I can confirm this issue occuring these days.
After updating my system more than one week ago, typing a password in gdm3 login-screen was not possible. When I tried to do so, gdm3 reloaded and only username was visible. So I switched to terminal and removed gdm3.
The following packages will be REMOVED:
gdm3* gnome* gnome-core*
After that I installed gdm3 again.
The following extra packages will be installed:
Doing autoremove resulted in something like this:
The following packages are no longer needed and will be removed
To make sure all dependencies would be resolved, I had to install the meta-package 'gnome' manually.
After this procedure gdm3 works fine again. I guess this is a packaging problem, too. I hope this helps to get this issue reproduced, or'll help other users having the same problem fix it.
Thx for your time
