It seems that I can no longer log into my system. Upon boot-up, the

This is a fresh install of FreeBSD. The only thing I added was KDE 3.2

I am having a similar issue logging in on 5.2.1-RC2, and it seems to have happened around the time I added a user and some groups using the KUser utility in KDE. All accounts, including root, are "expired". My error message is:

        login: pam_acct_mgmt(): user accound has expired
        Login Incorrect.

Then, a bit later, I receive messages like the following:

        kernel: psmintr: out of sync (0008 != 0000)
        kernel: psmintr: discard a byte(1)

On a side note, the message really does display "accound" instead of "account"; it's not a typo of mine. Searches on the following phrases within the questions and newbies mailing lists produced no leads for me to research:
'pam_acct_mgmt(): user accound has expired'
