Damn straight I was. And yes, I AM right. But no ranting required, no anger, no microphone or bullhorn demanded. You can yell loud funny words if you want.

But how weird is that YOU get something different? That's a bit of a stupidity all on its own. YOU didn't need a password....so why did I? I would now assume that it was not intentional...but it shouldn't be *possible*. No wonder I was frustrated: there WAS no password which would work!!

I downloaded the Gnome livecd image and used that instead....And yes, it auto-logs and goes to the desktop.
