Description of problem:
When typing in the user name and pressing <CR> the scrteen goes blank and asks
for username again which when supplied has the same effect except that when the
video returns the login screen is replaced by a dialogue box saying "The greeter application appears to be crashing. Attempting to try another one" this one does
work as expected.
When loging out you get a similar message.
