If you can't get a TTY on your box with Ctrl+Alt+F2 your install is broken.I've given up filing bugs on anything gnome or X related in the Fedora bugzilla, as they get closed when a release goes EOL without being fixed.

I've seen boxes where you cannot login any more because of LDAP and/or Kerberos Auth not working (for whatever reasons).
That's true for >root< account as well - even if the nsswitch.conf is *correct*.
However. Single User mode always helped and your Tech support will know how to get into init 1. I hope. If not, you should find another Tech Support :-P
Regarding your (Ctrl-)Alt-F2 Problem. I've never seen this. In no release. Well, something similar on a Desktop Box, where you try to switch from X to text console and the system freezes -> This was some nvid** driver bug. Already fixed with latest drivers of course.
Still. Single User mode is an option that *always* worked since I know UN*X/Linux and all their flavours :-)
