Is this possibly due to the ssh connection made by the clients?  It 
seems so since 3 password attempts is a norm for ssh.  Would it work if 
an alternative to ssh were used?  Perhaps appending


to lts.conf would restore the client's login to the same behavior as one 
is accustomed to with a workstation or server login where one interfaces 
directly with gdm/X11 without ssh.(?)

The class at issue just went into session, but I will test this shortly.
