Console login not responding after lost network


Sometimes when there's a network problem, such as server lost network connection due to faulty network card, console login become unresponsive. I can switch between various virtual console (ctrl+alt+fX) and enter the username, but I never get the "password" prompt back....most of times I end up reboot the server.

Why is this? any workarounds?

Thank you.

I think I've seen the same behavior on RHEL3. Server has LDAP login configured but I am login as root in this case.
