    Did you try this command to create your new user.
    Code:
    useradd -m username

    Strange, it worked on my Slackware install.
    I logged in as root, did "useradd -m wizard3"
    did "passwd wizard3"
    exited root, logged on as wizard3, did "startx".

    I don't understand why that wouldn't work on your machine.
