This is not a show stopper, but it makes me go, "hmmmmm".  Any ideas?

and I can do sudo su.

When you are using su, are you using your password or root's password?

sudo, miy user passwd, su, roots.

I have sudo su, then ran passwd for root to varify typos. Currenty the passwd is the same for testing reasons. Varified by logging in to tty1.
