Can't log in to full screen session

Today, I was going to do some “stuff” at the command line and decided I would do it full screen, the old way. So, I used Ctrl-Alt-F2 to bring up a full screen session. But! My username and password are not accepted! Why?


Works here for the same user, even when switching from the graphics terminal (ALT-CTRL-F7) without logging out of it.

Did you try other terminals, like ALT-CTRL-F1, F3, etc?

LEAP 42.3, KDE, updated yesterday.

Numlock? Caps Lock?

I have never had a problem with that. My username and password have only standard ASCII characters in them.

Are you using any special character encodings (those might be handled differently)?
