slim login infinite loop

Just installed the new version of #!  I did a clean install, but kept my /home partition.

The first time I booted up, I was greeted with an infinite loop login screen that would ask for my username, then my password, then my username, then my password etc. etc.

It never said I had typed the wrong information, it just asked me to input it again.

I pressed Ctrl+Alt+F2 and logged into the terminal without any problem.  I tried to fix the login loop for a while, but eventually realized I didn't know what I was doing and just installed gdm, which worked perfectly.

So gdm is working, but if there's an easy fix to this problem, I'd like to use slim.  Did this happen to anyone else?


Be excellent to each other!
