can't login on console with ctrl-alt-Fn

Hi list,

I do hope this isn't too stupid a question.
My system is configured to start x on login. Whenever I try to log into
a non-x console with ctrl-alt-Fn, either as root or a normal user, the
prompt claims "login incorrect".
I'm not sure if that's meant to signify "password incorrect" for that
user or something else, but I've tried it often enough to be sure about
typing the correct password.

I suppose that's one of these super-safe security settings that I'll
have to deactivate in one of the /etc/ config-files?
