I've seen that from time to time, on FC4 - FC6 (I haven't tried FC7,
yet).  Something doesn't quit when you exit, and it prevents them from
logging back in.  I'd go to a virtual console, login as root, and kill
off the processes one by one that should have been closed when that user
logged out.  That usually solved it.

(This box runs FC5, my others run FC4 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)
