Is the password and/or account expiring perhaps? You can go in as root and see if there are expiration dates set on the account or its password. There's probably a nice GUI to do this in SUSE, but I'm not sure how exactly, since I don't use it.

Hmm, I ran into this exact same problem as well. It's irritating to get your primary user account completely set up to your liking and then get kicked out of it for no apparent reason. And it happened multiple times as well. But I then went in as root and created a new account, deleted the old one, and I never have had any problems since (several months have passed). It sounds plausible that the account created during the installation process has a short expiration on the password.
