In my nightmare use case scenario, install F8, enable NIS authentication
at first boot, get the gdm prompt, no users are listed as their shell is
tcsh, root login is now disabled, a graphically oriented user is locked
out of their system. 

I know how to work around this, it likely won't happen for upgrades, but
it does cause some problems.
