Assuming a permission problem, I was starting to systematically
check my whole system for perms.
Began at the root directory and this showed up as:
 drwxr-x--- root.root /

Changed that to 755 and all users could login. :))
I assume the reason for this was a starting distro which was
defined as "paranoid", the subdirs all created correctly
by my install script but of course not the root dir.

At least I know now what paranoid means (without dictonary)
Thanks for all your ideas.
