I'm getting this error realy often, usualy after playing a bit with
a fresh-installed gnu.

After login, and being asked for password:

  login: Authentication failure: (ipc/mig) server died

If i type "exec su" at the login prompt, it will spawn a root shell, though.

I guess the error may be related to problems with an un-fsck'ed root
filesystem, as ext2fs was started on such some times.

I'm going to reinstall. If i hit this error again, is there something
i can try to provide useful information?
