How does one drop out of slim to the console? I installed FreeBSD-11
on a spare laptop and I am having some difficulty logging on through
slim.  I have installed mate and slim but when I run slim it prompts
for a login and then fails with 'unable to execute login'; or
something similar.

However when this happens I do not know how to get out of the
graphical logon screen without rebooting the system.
