When my system boots up, and I click my username, and enter my password, the login attempt fails. However, when I try the exact same password again, I can successfully log in. What could have caused this? I am using the latest arch Linux on the latest gnome3/gdm.

    does it happen if you try to login over SSH or via the console? – thrig Dec 26 '17 at 22:09

I just realized that for some reason, the first key I press on my USB keyboard does not get registered.
