For anyone who is stuck with this problem, note that the problem
happens when doing a normal password check.  So, you *may* be
able to work around this if you have something like "authorized
keys" set up in openssh.

Or maybe you can log in as one userid, but not some userid like
root (that was my problem -- every userid worked fine except for
root).  If you're lucky enough to set up 'sudo' for a userid you
*can* log into, you may be able to use that to become root.
