I have enabled the login window so that the username and password must be entered to login to an account. However, when I switch out of my user and type >console into the username field, the screen flashes white and nothing happens.

Why is this happening? Can I fix it?

I, too, had this problem. The way I fixed it was to log out of all accounts on my Mac. After this, >console login worked flawlessly.
