Yup, I've had the same problem on my last two builds, but can't track it
down. If I 'pwconv' & 'grpconv' then I am no longer able to log in.
Performing a 'pwunconv' & 'grpunconv' once again allows me to log in.
I'm sure it's something to do with my scripts I use to build my systems
but I've not managed to track it down yet.
Sorry to not be of any more help - at least I know I'm not alone now!
