Arrrg...! Login hang!
Authored by: Paul Burney on Nov 03, '01 11:08:38PM

Actually, I had this problem twice last week and I don't think it was related to iTunes. I did the same thing you did, hard restart at first and then the problem still occurred on the next login.

After login stalled, I was able to open system prefs, then use the force quit keys to bring up the finder from which I could get to the terminal and then kill the loginwindow process. I mentioned it on the apple discussion boards, but no one responded.

My problem seemed to work itself out after a while, I guess. Hopefully it doesn't happen to you again.
