Why am I being bombarded with "Authentication Required" ?

Googled for this in Ubuntu forums, and the answers were wrong,
lame, or non existent.

I keep getting Authentication Required dialogs, which
say "Authentication is required to change your own user data".

I even went down into

and changed the <allow_active>yes</allow_active> to
no, rebooted, and no affect.

I get these dialogs about once evvery 30 seconds, and they lock out the
screen entirely.  Hitting cancel seems appropriate.

Words cannot express how irritating these interruptions are.
