All that helps is sending the enlightenment process a -HUP from console. This looks like the opposite from what others reported recently, that every password (or just pressing ENTER) would work to unlock the screen.

Screen lock uses PAM to check the correctness of the password.
E checks if one of the following PAM services exists and then uses it:

* login
* enlightenment
* xscreensaver
* kscreensaver
* system-auth

Maybe that your problem is in PAM configuration.
