Linuxconf validate the permissions bits of various key files and
directories. Its resources
file for redhat suggest roor,root,0400 for /etc/shadow. It seems the
various utilities like
usermod and friends set it back to 0600. I guess the resource file for
linuxconf should be
fixed to 0600 so it stops signaling this difference everytime you quit from
