The file /etc/securetty only lists X servers up to :3.1. For a two-three user
system, it is common to see X servers with higher numbers (on my parent's
laptop, I see gdm3 hanging at :6). On those servers, users without password
cannot login anymore.
Therefore please extend the list of secure ttys to something very high, so
users will be able to login (let's say :99). In my opinion, this should
be fixed for Squeeze (I think it's release critical, but that's the
maintainers or the release teams decision).
This should probably be fixed correctly in PAM later on, to allow local
users to login regardless of the terminal, but it's too late to do bigger
