check the /var/log/messages and look for related entries in case there is a permission issue.

you can create another folder in /home/herb-second

mv /home/herb /  
usermod -d /home/herb-second herb 

reboot

see if you can login as herb if yes.. do again usermod -d /home/herb herb

then mv /herb/* /home/herb

and reboot and see if it you can login


if that doesn't work it might be wrong UUID of /home in the /etc/fstab so basically it can not find anything behind /home
