Still on Pre-Respin PM7 and is standing the test of time, kodi abuse and being used more than the inferior  BSOD Operating Systems I have..anyway that's another matter.

Over time my lightDM GTK+ greeter is intermittently showing the screen or just not bothering sometimes.  >:(
Another thing it does is, briefly show the greeter screen and then quickly go to the desktop screen before I have a chance to log in within seconds of start-up.
is this connected? If so, how can it be fixed? Is there a way to reset this, so it works all the time again?

Thanks in advance.

A re-installation via synaptic cured it, for now anyway.
