Just when I thought I had this under control, I find a new issue. Apparently, 
by logging in as single user, and setting a new password, I set a password 
with an extremely short time-to-live. I just tried to switch to root and I am 
being informed that my password has expired! I just reset it yesterday. So, 
what's the correct procedure, here? Log in as single user again, I guess, 
reset the password, then.... How do I make it last more than 24 hours?
