Upon kill process going defunct

Dear friends,
On my linux box except one tty all other ttys I am not able to login.
There is no response and in some the login screen doesnot come.
When I try to kill process the command is executed but the on ps -aux the process goes "defunct".
Even i tried to shutdown or halt BUT
the response "Shutting down" comes but then no response.
Even when i try to su as root i am sucessful but
the remark "PAM_pwdb[4439] etc keeps coming.
What could be the problem?
pls help.
