AFAIK this message appears _only_ if the system is unable to start 
correctly due to some errors (may be filesystem check failure or 
similar, or you might pass 'single' option to the kernel comand line). 
In other words you have a problem which isn't the second login.

The preceding messages (if possible) would be very useful to solve the 

Anyway, you can still type root's password instead of pressing Ctrl-D 
and then just logout. The system should reboot then.

Nothing but perfection
