10.4: Fix System Keychain corruption after migration

Couldn't you just launch Keychain First Aid in Pseudo? Wouldn't that open it in the root account and let you make the right fixes?

What is pseudo? Is it like sudo as in: "super-user do" or is it another app for running sudo in the gui?

It's a shareware app that works like sudo, but for GUI applications. (On VersionTracker.)

No, in this case you would indeed require activating the root account.

You CAN launch Keychain Access with sudo or Psuedo, but when you run the Keychain First Aid command you are prompted for your user/pass. In actuality, you could merely launch Keychain Access as yourself, and run Keychain First Aid with ANY user/pass combo and it will evaluate THAT user's keychains, so root account being active is unfortunately indeed required.... just quickly deactivate it afterwards!
