Wouldn't that prevent logging in by switching users also though?  I
would try moving anything like e-mails that I wanted saving and delete
that user altogether.  Then recreate it.  It's not a brilliant way but
it might work.  Obviously no good if you have a lot of settings that
you have to keep.

I have all my passwords set never to expire.  There is only me on the
system anyway.

Take care.
