Looks like you got bitten by a bug in KUser that was shipped with
FreeBSD 5.2. This has been fixed in the latest version.
As a fix, try booting into single user mode, mounting your filesystems
(it's important to mount them rw), and then fixing your passwd database
Regardless of whether that fixes things or not, it's a very good idea to
update KDE to the latest version (or just use the robust user and group
administration tools that have shipped with FreeBSD and that have worked
I abhor a system designed for the "user", if that word is a coded
pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated". -- Ken Thompson
Unix is user friendly. However, it isn't idiot friendly.
