OpenSUSE 11.2 – Empty user list pre-logon

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Sometimes my user list is empty on start-up. When it happens the buttons beneath the empty list (shutdown, suspend and restart), are not responding. As a work-around I login to the first terminal as root to restart the machine and usually my normal user account appears back on the list. This morning the reboot work-around didn't work any more... please assist.
