I have 8 running on an Intel 64 PC. Never used auto-login, so I'm not
experiencing the issue that you have. I'm very surprised that 8 was
"released" when all the major issues have not been retested. The main
issue with Software Manager is unresolved. KsCD still does not play. NTP
is still broken. Should we have another RC before the final, official
