That's fine, I've received them directly.

Could you check on those system the content of /etc/inittab too? (join
them if possible). Did you change anything there? Do you use some kind
of serial login? (I know this is weird on a laptop but...)
But in any case, I don't think those are related to the login failures.

It's fine :)
There are quite some difference between the systems installs (in dpkg
-l) so it's hard to say for sure.
For the lightdm log, could you explain which is which, and especially if
there's a ?failed? one there?
