I have been having a problem where my user ID keeps getting locked out. I believe it's because when I was young and stupid, I did server updates and other major changes with my own user ID rather than the true admin ID. I have been through several password cycles since I stopped doing that, so I wonder if some process is trying to use the expired authentication. However, AFAIK, all processes are running properly. Two questions:
1. Could that scenario be true?
2. Should I blow away my user id and recreate?

I don't mind recreating the id, but I'm paranoid that something may depend on it now. Weird, I know, but I'd like to hear what the experts think. By the way, I have already flailed about with dstrace to try to figure out what's happening, but the problem is inconsistent so it's hard to catch. Thanks for any tips on this.
