Can't Authenticate GDM Login After 'yum upgrade'



I ran a 'yum upgrade' on my test 3 portable Thursday night. Since then
I've been unable to log onto the desktop. Console logins have not been
affected. I see the following error in /var/log/secure:

Sep 24 07:04:13 sonata gdm[6597]: pam_unix(gdm:auth): authentication
failure; logname= uid=0 euid=0 tty=:0 ruser= rhost=
Sep 24 07:04:13 sonata gdm[6597]: pam_succeed_if(gdm:auth): error
retrieving information about user JANINA

Well, the user is 'janina,' and not 'JANINA,' of course. Is it me? Is
there some way the desktop can be locked into caps-lock independently of
the caps lock key? Or some other issue? Down versioning gdm doesn't
help.

I'm seriously stuck on this one. I'm in Copenhagen to demonstrate the
new desktop accessibility features Monday and Tuesday. All help most
gratefully appreciated.
