Yes, I followed a setup suggestion from somewhere(!), and have a /tmp
partition. I'd been trying to install "Rome-Total War" under wine & the
only place big enough was /tmp. When that didn't work, I forgot to clear
/tmp (as well as some left overs from before I switched to KDE) so yes,
tmp had no free space. I couldn't login to F10 normally (thought it must
have been a download which screwed up my system) I tried the CD to try &
rescue the system. That's when I got the crazy login/password problem.
Once I'd managed to clear /tmp, all worked normally again.
But as I wrote earlier, running the F11 Live-CD on my laptop (which also
had F10 on it) gave no problems & has installed quite happily onto
harddisk (reformatting all the existing partitions except /boot to ext4)
