I Inadvertently posted the gnome-keyring bit. That's almost standard error
message on FreeBSD-Gnome. The relevant bit for the error is in fact:
slim: gkr-pam: no password is available for user
However, the user cannot login on a tty without providing a password.

For ssh, the same error and dropped connection occurs for all users. sshd
was modified to allow root login.  All users have valid home directories
defined. From /etc/passwd; I wonder if this has anything to do with it?
sshd:*:22:22:Secure Shell Daemon:/var/empty:/usr/sbin/*nologin*

>> Could it be a dud /root/.tcshrc? Or /etc/login.conf?
The accounts which try to ssh login also login on host proper and do not
have any login issues when logging-in directly on host - so I think we can
eliminate these problems.

Thanks and Regards
