Thanks. Very helpful.

I am still trying to fully understand the implications of this.

It certainly makes sense for the slim login screen to be greeter class. But,
semantically, I would also expect the subsequent user login to be class user. I
don't yet know what other effects (if any) having the user login as class
greeter has.

Maybe we unset XDG_SESSION_CLASS again before pam.open_session? But maybe that
would no longer fix the issue you came across?

This seems to confirm that the user login itself should not be class greeter.
