tty login vs Gnome screen lock

 I have a Centos 4.4 system (unpatched) that lets me log in via tty/console, but 
when the Gnone screen lock kicks in, my password is unable to unlock.   I am 
absolutely certain I an typing the correct password.  I had to Alt-F1 to log in 
that way, issue a sudo reboot, then logged back in, enabled the screen lock, 
typed my password again, and it would not unlock. 

What am I missing?
