Whilst system integrity will be mostly maintained by not disclosing the root password, putting the user password on the machine, or in plain sight anywhere is extremly bad practise.
Granted i don't know your office setup or anything but still, i throw a tissy when users log in as other users, it causes confusion and should User A login as B and look at "XXX one legged midget porn" it can cause all sorts of problems. Having accounts for each user is an extremly trivial thing (create new user, copy settings from ~ of default user ..).
Anyway, just personal peeve of mine
As already stated though, what numerous password screens are you encountering for your mentioned activities??
