Unable to log into gnome - strange characters in the username field


I just updated to gnome 2.11 using the SuSE gnome rpms recently posted at SuSE9.2-gnome2.11 . Now , when I start gnome, it does not allow me to log in. On the opening login screen, I keep getting a pop up window saying 'Authentication Failed' and does not allow me to enter anything in user/password field, something broke in the update, possibly a missing package?

Any ideas anyone??

Edited:
Just noticed that there are some characters already in the username field - I suspect there is tab and newline in there. Does anyone know which config file for gnome may have this information that I need to clean out??
