What do you mean by the local console? GUI gdm prompt, or text console login prompt?
If you talk about the GUI prompt, then this is not a bug - it is intentionally disabled.
Can you look into /var/log/messages, /var/log/secure, and /var/log/audit.log and attach messages from the time of your login attempt.
