Description LeeDuren 2000-10-10 04:08:36 UTC
If you have the same password for the root accountr and one of its users, 
the system eventually does not let anyone in, even root.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-10 12:48:42 UTC
This isn't true.
If you take a look at the code, you'll see that when you log in, only your own
password, not root's or anyone else's, is checked.

Chances are you've been cracked and someone is playing odd tricks at you.
