"Give root password for maintence" during every boot of system: Solved!
Thank you all for your gracious help.
You were right. The default entry in grub (modified in /etc/default/grub and then
running upgrade-grub) had shifted down one entry to the single user mode entry.
restoring the correct default entry in /etc/default/grub and running upgrade-grub
solved my problem.
Thank you all again!!!
