This works! ... the problem with pam is fixed, but I'm not home and
dry yet.  
I get the splash login screen but, typing in my login details gets
'Authentication failed' for all users *and* root.  I don't even get to
type my password.  Is gdm not finding /etc/passwd?

This is not a bad idea, I'll send in once the dust has settled.
