[arch-general] login fails after update

Hello all,

I did a complete upgrade following the instructions w.r.t.
the /lib symlink, and indeed ended up with pacman -Su saying
'nothing to do' and /lib being a symlink.

On rebooting I get the login prompt on tty1..6, but after
entering a login nothing happens (no passwd prompt) and
after a few seconds the screen is cleared and the login
prompt returns. 

Any ideas ?
