there does seem to be a problem with it not accepting your password


There's something to that, I'm convinced of it.

I've had a number of Linux distributions on a laptop I swear sometimes refuses to accept my password even though I know, absolutely and positively, has been typed in correctly. Then I force a reboot and everything's fine, on the very first attempt.

Every once in a while it's the NumLock key. Being a laptop, it doesn't have a dedicated numeric keypad, and some keys (YUI/HJK/NM, I think) can be reused to enter digits. But when I get in the situation described above, more often than not, hitting NumLock doesn't make any difference. For a while, I had temporarily changed my password so it doesn't use any of those multi-use buttons...and hadn't encountered the problem. It could have been just a coincidence. It's never happened often enough for me to notice any particular pattern or become a predictable thing.

Same laptop ran various versions of Windows for years prior to that, without ever exhibiting this behavior.
