Thanks, that helped! I generated a dummy key I don't care about, and
then was able to change the pin, and set a reset pin as well.

Then I thought I would start to import the keys I actually want.... but
the pin doesn't actually work; any attempt to use it decrements the pin
retry counter.

Fortunately, I set a reset pin, and I can unblock using the reset pin
once the retry counter limit is blocked...

Does setting a reset pin disable adminless mode? Which pin does the pin
reset set (admin or ... regular/user)? Are there character restrictions
on pins, but it doesn't properly check them before changing the pin?

Seems so close, yet so far!

live well,
