Issue

Once the target of your system was changed from graphical to multi-user, no longer an initial created user can not login in graphical target.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install RHEL8 with GUI (Software Selection -> Sever with GUI)

2. Create an user

3. Login by the user with ssh from a remote terminal

4. change the target from graphical to multi-user
  #  systemctl isolate multi-user.target

5. Return the target from  multi-user to graphical

6. try to login from the Desktop

7. Can not log-in by the initial user (In this situation, if you use an another user instead of the one who logged in first, you can log in to the GUI)
