Yeah, I ran across this with a google search yesterday.  I found that 
the account expiration dates for all my accounts were set to December 
1969 somehow.  Changing this fixed it, but I was having some other 
issues regarding logging in and out with X that were still unresolved, 
so I'm in the process now of doing a fresh install.

Thanks for the info, everyone!
