Question Suse 9.1 screen lock login ( from Screensaver)

Hello again,

I'm using Suse 9.1 & i have a problem after updating the kernel last week. Updated my system to the most recent updates using both YAST & apt get, the problem is, now if I either lock the screen or the screen saver comes on, I cannot log back in. I can type the password in but clicking okay or pressing enter does nothying. Not even an error. The only way past this is either to ctrl+alt+bkspace or to log in as another user. has anyone seen this behavior before. please be gentle with the solution if there is one as I am very new with linux But learning relatively fast so please go gently. Please help this one is drivin me nuts as to why it stopped working.
