I don't know if this is a new feature of Tiger or not, but since installing it last night "Other..." now appears in the list of users in the Login Window. I have checked and root user is not enabled. Does anyone know what this is and how I can get rid of it??

You can download loginwindow manager from bombich.com and hide it from a feature in that program.

You can also go into directory access in the Utilitities folder and uncheck directory access and netinfo if your computer does not log into a server.

It's not something to worry about. It allows you to login to a network-authenticated user on another server or as the "root" user if enabled.

Thanks for your input. I found that the root password had been changed to blank (i.e. no password) somehow during the upgrade to Tiger. The fix was to change it to something non-trivial.
