comment OS X 10.8.3 root user account permissions corrupted
Thanks for this, it fixed my issue. For those just copy/pasting the command, don't forget to change '504' with the actual current id of the root user. Also, don't forget it's UniqueID and not UniqueId (that typo cost me 10 minutes of confusion)
