You seem to have missed the point. Nobody should have to work around 
this problem, it should not occur.

If Anaconda does not provide a means of creating an alternative 
_administrator_ account, then root needs to be able to login to use the 
preferred (by RH) GUI tools for creating user accounts

The current position is that root cannot login via the DM, but can do a 
text-mode login and then startx.

Reinstalling wasn't going to fix the problem.
