Hi HP-

Thanks for your note.

 All that I have seen since the first boot after installation is the lower 
rightmost login splash in the lower right corner of the screen (about a 
quarter of the screen wide.)

Maybe this can explain it: are you running gdm3?  (That appears to be the 
default manager after install.)

Also, do you have any observations about MDM?  xdm?
