Trouble is much too big a word.

If logins are disabled (/etc/nologin exists), I would find it
reasonable behaviour to ask for the user name: is the user claims
to be root, authenticate.
If the user is someone else, say why she can't login, and go back
to getty after a couple of seconds.

It's just a but counter-intuitive to hear you can't login, and 
the being invited to enter your name again.

Absolutely no big deal.
