[opensuse] Login password(s) not accepted

Yesterday I installed 12.1 (KDE) from the DVD onto a brand new x86_64 system. Got everything working correctly - and was at peace with myself.
Then I decided to upgrade KDE to v4.8.2 - which I had successfully done on the 32-bit system - using this repository:
I used "zypper dup --from <x>" - and the upgrade went thru OK.
But then I rebooted the system - and the damn wheels fell off! :'( .
My user password, and the root's, was unrecognised - or put another way, every time I entered the password the login screen would reappear.
Rebooting the system and typing "init 3" at the Grub menu, and then logging in as either user or as root, both the passwords WERE recognised.
As root, and using yast, I reset the user's password but this, again, was not recognised at the login menu (after getting past Grub that is).
Does anyone know why this should have occurred? and how to solve this problem should it happen again?
(I just finished re-installing 12.1 which was the only way I knew how to get my system back.)
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
