Bug#4534: Switch to single-user mode fails
When I try to switch to single-user mode using the command `runlevel s' a
problem occurs: the system correctly terminates all programs and gives me
the prompt from sulogin. However, when I enter my password the characters
are echoed on the screen. After entering the password (correctly) nothing
happens, until I press Control-C, after which the system returns to the
default runlevel (ie 2).
Booting directly into single-user mode via lilo or loadlin works correctly.
System used is the latest stable Debian (1.1.something) with kernel 2.0.18.
