I was able to resolve the double login issue by doing the following:

apt-get purge lightdm
apt-get install lightdm
then running horizon-optimizer.sh again answering all 2's to the questions.

Ryan- Please integrate this fix into your next OVA. You probably only need to purge lightdm before you rebuild. When you generate the OVA please use CLI option:
--shaAlgorithm=sha1

so us C# people can still use it. Thanks for all your hard work on this, I never would have been able to tackle an AD-integrated Horizon Ubuntu workstation myself!

Jon - finally have time to be revisiting this. The interesting thing is lightdm doesn't get installed until horizon-optimizer.sh is ran. I'm not sure at what point after it gets installed, something goes awry requiring the package purge. We can try putting the install later in the script, but it's possible a configuration or installation outside of my script is affecting it.

This issue is due to the adding of this line by the script in /etc/pam.d/lightdm
auth requisite pam_vmw_cred.so
But I don't know whiches parameters we can replace to resolve this

Thanks Jon for the input! I will certainly address this in the next build.
