Comment 2 Bob T. 2003-10-03 18:47:50 UTC
rpm -V shadow-utils  is empty

Comment 3 Bob T. 2003-10-07 14:35:39 UTC
After comparing my trace with the trace of a successful useradd on another RH9
box, I conjectured that useradd was incompatible with libsafe.  And indeed,
after unsetting LD_PRELOAD, useradd no longer segfaults.  But presumably there
is unsafe  
code in useradd, which is somewhat worrisome.

Sounds like a dup of bug #89145 (which has a patch)
