Bug Description

My system:
Kubuntu 18.04.2 LTS


Using a console (ctrl alt f2), I was unable to login, for example as
root (yes I have a password for root) or any other user.

Procedure detailed:

1. ctrl alt f2
The normal login: prompt appears.

2. I type root (or any other user)
Immediately after the <Enter> the Password: prompt is displayed but it
doesn't wait for me to type anything! It continues with the message
"Login incorrect" and prompts for login again:.
It repeats this "login:" followed by "Login incorrect" several times.
Then it clears the screen and prompts for "login:" and stays there waiting
for input.

3. If I type a user again, the process is repeated!

Further Information:

I searched the net and found that this bug also happened with opensuse and was fixed.
See please
