Hello everone out there looking for this bug.

It was happened while i was setting-up my personal programs. ( esp. licq )

I opened licq and jumped to console for lynx.
But i was unable to login as root and also user ( alt ).
Sametime i was trying to connect to an irc network via BitchX.
( Yes , I installed that programme from another source disk )

I was logined as user to the console , so i tried to become root and 
used " su "  ..
But "su" also gave me an error ( seen in below )

*** su: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypt.so.1: invaild ELF
header. ***

-------------------------------- 0  -------------------------------

And i made a "ps -e " to see runnig applications ;
969 ? 		userhelper
973 ?		kppp
974 ?		kppp
975 ttyS1 	pppd
996 ?		licq-bin
1000 ?		licq-bin
1001 ? 		licq-bin
1002 ? 		licq-bin
1003 ? 		licq-bin
1012 tty3		mingetty
1016 tty2		mingetty
1018 tty1		ps

# kill -9 969
# kill -9 1016
# kill -9 996


And i killed these pids. So , yeah .. I was able to login from all of

Ps : I wont remember that i opened an "userhelp"

Anyways , maybe im wrong. But some1 have to control this.
This will cause to crash the system. And wont let admins to login.

Thanks for caring and reading at the end of my letter.
