I do Infosec for a living and I'll tell you that this suggestion provides absolutely no security whatsoever. As long as anyone can touch your computer they own your computer. Boot off an install cd and reset the root password, target disk mode, yoink the drive out and mount it under a linux filesystem with hfs support etc etc. and those are just the suggestions off the top of my head. Your only protection is to pick an honest repairman(woman).
