System snapshot broke password

Fresh Mate install, updated, installed many apps from “add/remove software”, then went to syst apps bauh to install more apps, opted for syst snapshot, got snapshot finished, then password didn’t work. LIGHTBULB just lit, checked “time shift” and password worked there. Went back to bauh and password is working now. ??? Who knows now, only the gremlin.
CentOS has a similar problem after fresh install, reboot and password doesn’t match due to a (*) changing to a (!) somewhere. Maybe a clue for you.

But … you didnt really provide many clues.

How to provide good information

It kinda sounds like it may be related to an update to PAM and you didnt properly address the pacnew files.
