I filed a bug yesterday. I got an email from the bug folks saying it had
already been posted, but I didn't see one.  I'm not sure how you would find
the bug if you don't word the search just right....

I just did

sudo apt-get install unity-greeter

installed a bunch of stuff

clt-alt-f1  and logged in and

sudo service lightdm restart

and now I'm good to go.
