Check your /etc/pam.conf.  PAM is telling you It looks as though there is 
something wrong with that account that pam is requiring.

See if you can 'su' to that user with the user's password.  If it gives you an 
error message (such as user does not exist, or no such account, or something 
else), it might give information about what needs to be fixed about that 

Also try doing a rlogin or telnet or local terminal login of 'someuser' and 
see if the error persists.
