Description of Problem:

The arcitecture is the following: I have a Windows 2000 server that I connect 
to using terminal services, and I tried to SSH to the Linux box from there 
using PuTTY. I wait rather long to get password prompt after entering the 
username (root), but the password is not accepted. Furthermore the password is 
no longer accepted even if I try to log from the console. I first suspected an 
intrusion and change of the password, but I finaly got to the cause of the 
problem (and you might guess that this was pretty difficult to debug).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RedHat 7.2
Windows 2000 Server w/SP2
Remote Desktop Connection (version from XP)
PuTTY 0.52

How Reproducible:

Each time in my current setup (I haven't tested it too much, though, since this 
requires the reset of the server, which is in production)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to W2k using terminal service (admin mode)
2. Use PuTTY to connect to RedHat 7.2 computer
3. Enter username root
4. Wait for password prompt, then enter password

Actual Results:

Login denied for that session, login denied for all other sessions, including 
direct console login

Expected Results:

Normal login

After more than two years since reporting the bug I don't remember 
anymore either the solution I've found, or the actual causes of the 
bug. Consider the bug closed.

Ok, I'll close the bug, anyway thanks for the report.
