Mystery solved... once I added a lock for vlock, zypper revealed that
kbd 2.0.4 obsoletes vlock package. And indeed, kbd-2.0.4 contains
/usr/bin/vlock and changelog says

* Fri Sep 22 2017 sbrabec@xxxxxxxx

- Version update to 2.0.6:
* translation updates
* support for U+202F
* minor fixes and code cleanup
* minor improvements and more characters support

- Enable vlock (bsc#1056449, FATE#261).

I'm a bit confused by the "to 2.0.6" part but that may be just a typo.

Thanks! I guess I just need to zypper dup for the fix.

Didn't work. Once locked, I cannot unlock the tty. There is no line saying to
type Enter to key in my passphrase like previously.

The following just keep being printed and scrolling:


The pts/0 is now locked by <username>.
Authentication failure.
