There was an easier "fix". In another attempt to remedy the problem, I 
did another install (binaries only). This again dropped me into a usable 
system with no password set for root. I have full access and I pulled 
down the latest cvsup of src for current. This was the second time I did 
the reinstall. The first time I set a root password and the same thing 
happened, a login core dump. So, for now I am hoping a clean build will 
cure the problem.
