I am new to linux, i did freak out inside linux. After that i  restarted the machine, and now i am not able to login. I am getting a message 'Authentication failed'. If i am giving wrong password there is another message coming saying 'wrong user name' Authentication failed is displayed on a dialog box. I created another user and tried to log in the same message is displayed.

could you tell me why is it so?
