Why do folks insist on using the Terminal to change passwords? That's what System Preferences - Accounts is for.

Do you have your original install media along with you? Otherwise, you may have to wait until you get back home. Do not copy one account to the other while the password is in Limbo. That will lead to further lockouts and probably a complete re-install.

In the meantime you might want to try this work around - hack: Link
