Is it the case that only GUI apps are using the old password, but everything 
else works with the new one? I am not familiar with Synaptic -- is it 
synaptic that is requesting a password, or are you running it via sudo (eg 
gksudo or something)? If you are running it with gksudo, does sudo synaptic 
(at the command line) work with the new password?

Has your machine been rooted? There was that kernel vulnerability just last
