No problem. Don't forget that although you've now made it non-trivial
to break into your computer with console access, it's still easy for a
physical attacker to:
- remove your hard drive
- boot from a USB key or CD or floppy etc
- mess with your BIOS settings.
This is why by default there's no root password for single user; if an
attacker has physical access you're screwed anyway!
