Hello all,

After a full upgrade it seems I'm locked out :-(

The system boots normally, and shows the xdm login screen.
But my password is not accepted. Same in a tty, also for

I can boot using an installation stick, mount all partitions
under /mnt as during installation, and do an arch-chroot /mnt

I reset my password and the root password in that environment,
but that didn't help. After a normal boot I'm still locked out.

Any hints to solve this will be much appreciated !
