    I posted this over at the Apple Support forums, but no luck yet, hoping someone here might have some insight:

    Details:

    1.9 GHz G5 iMac - Tiger 10.4.11

    What I've tried so far:

    1. Booting into safe mode (didn't work)
    2. Logging in using Fast User Switching. (didn't work)
    3. Tried reinstalling the 10.4.11 combo update (had no affect)
    4. Logged in as root and tried trashing preferences of corrupted user account (still couldn't login as that user!)

    Again, any help or advice is greatly appreciated.

    I really feel sorry for you :(
    Some weeks ago I had a problem with an corrupted user account, I could log in correctly though.
    I don't have any suggestions but if you decide to move to a new account perhaps my post helps you a bit...

    Hope you make it!
    Good luck!

    Thanks for the link to the other thread... that might be my last resort option if I can't get this to work (which is how it's looking.)
