While browsing through sbin/init.c, I noticed that init will
effectively lock you out of single-user mode if the console is
set 'insecure' AND root's password field is empty (ok, that case
is quite uncommon :). Although I tend to interpret this as a
feature, I think it could also considered a bug.

Any opinions ?
