Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
"*" in pw_passwd prevents pam_unix from changing the password. This is
currently not implemented for "*" in sp_pwdp when _unix_shadowed().
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It was decided by upstream that this shouldn't be implemented. Also the '"*" in
pw_passwd prevents pam_unix from changing the password' feature is now removed
from upstream sources.
