Xenial login failure

My Mac mini is off for a hard-disk upgrade. The donor is my old
desktop-replacement Toshiba laptop.

So I only have my Thinkpad X200 for a couple of days and thus it has
decided now is a good time to refuse to log in.

(I am typing in Win10. :-( It's fine, actually, it works, but it's sluggish.)

It's v16.04, upgraded from 14.04, upgraded from a new install of 13.10.

It has occasionally done this before, but usually, a reboot clears it.

It's running vanilla Ubuntu-64 with Unity.

The machine is a Core 2 Duo with 8GB of RAM and on-chip Intel HD4500
graphics. No dedicated GPU.

I've Googled the issue and most people talk about issues with nVidia
graphics, which I don't have.

The Guest account still works.

Any ideas, anyone?
