Comment out the 4th line of /etc/pam.d/gdm so it reads:
#auth      required    pam_suceed_if.so user != root quiet

And log-out. 'Root' is now an acceptable user during the graphical login as an 'Other'. (And /root/.dmrc will continue to exist if you use it/create it.)

thats for the info, but it wasnt actually what the problem was.  I'll keep trying things, someone mentioned SLiM, sounds nice to try too.
