Bingo. That works. Thanks very much. At last my dream of not starting my desktop session at t/he greeter but instead starting it via ssh is fulfilled. I can die happy now.

My first thought about the solution is "Why allow only either root, console, or anybody?" Why not a group? That seems so obvious that I can't believe it wasn't considered and rejected years ago. Anybody know if that's the way it went? If so, why?
