        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'

That is exactly what I was doing when this problem occurred. I am going
to the KDE site and report this problem. It might be a bug of some sort.
You might want to do the same if you have not all ready.

As a side bar, in the master.passwd file, near the top, is an entry
that includes: "Charlie &". Is it possible, or should I say, advisable
to change that entry manually or just leave it as is?
