After updating to 9.2 (and subsequently falling back to 9.1), i lost the ability to enable, disable or setup my Password Security control panel because the Enable and Disable radio buttons, and the Setup button are all dimmed-out/disabled. I can't figure out how to reenable them. I've tried using different copies of the control panel, Disk First Aid and Norton report nothing wrong with the disk, i've used DiskWarrior to lay down a new catalog, and i've tried updating the HD driver. Password Security operates at the driver level, so i really didn't expect standard disk utilities to fix the problem, but i thought a new driver just might. It didn't.

I figure a bit must have gotten turned the wrong way somewhere above the volume level. Anyone run up against this problem before? I guess i'll have to reformat the HD and reload my volumes if nobody knows the solution to this one.
