Maybe along with the IBM guy who swapped Ctrl with CapsLock :-)

$ cd /home
$ mv TBaker TBaker.bak

I guess that's unnecessary now...
Yes, I had indeed scanned through that bulletin but didn't

$ vim /etc/passwd
has apparently fixed everything. Much easier than migrating
my whole system from XP to Windows 7.
