    Default the session was locked by the root.password is not toor.

    iam running backtrack 5 r1 (KDE 32).i boot with usb
    i do not type a password to log in .only startx to begin.
    after a while the session was locked by root , so i have to provide a password to log in again.
    i type toor...nothing , i left it blank... still nothing
    .
    No one of the password i tried was correct.the reason is that i didn't type one at the beginning?( boot from usb )
    what should i type?
