Seemed some things were missing, one of them being login....
Which is *very strange* ...
Fortunately I could afford to just dump this system and do
a fresh netinstall - all OK now.

It was installed something like half a year ago and not used
at all before I tried the upgrade. So I really wonder if the
late 2011 install image followed by a pacman -Syu still works,
as far as I can tell it doesn't, and only a netinstall will.
