After booting, I tried to log in, but for some reasons I accidentally typed in the wrong password too often, however,
now even with the definitely correct password, it still said "Authentication failed". Wth!

I then switched to anothet tty, tried to login and there it said something like, "account has been locked due to too many failed attempts. You can attempt to log in again in 9 minutes".

This information should definitely be on the SDDM login screen. ;)
