rootpw --iscrypted somecryptedpasswd does not work

It's supposed to put that string, verbatim, into root's
password entry in /etc/passwd.  When booting from
a rescue disk I discovered that it places a
different string there.

This worked correctly under 5.2.

This is a show-stopper for us, and is preventing us
from installing Redhat Linux 6.0 across our installation.

This has been verified to be a problem.

*** Bug 2460 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

When using kickstart to install a machine, I used an already
encrypted password. When it rebooted I couldn't log in as
root. After some investigating, I found out if I presented
the password hash I had specified in the kickstart file, it
would then let me log in.

In other words, during the install, the encrypted password
was encrypted again.

I checked the value of skipCrypt and found it to be 0 after the call
to poptGetContext inside of setRootPassword inside install2.c

This seems to be the problem, although why the poptGetContext is
returning skipCrypt as 0 is beyond me.

I have verified this on a test lab machine.

*** Bug 2627 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***


When doing a kickstart installation with RedHat 6.0
(kickstart is great!) and writing something like

rootpw --iscrypted 8d78LWoez74ef

in the kickstart file sets the root password to "8d78LWoe".
--iscrypted still worked in 5.2.  I quickly looked through
the code in install2, but there were little changes in
the password code, so I could not figure the problem out.
I have --useshadow in auth config.

In ref to Bug 2640. This still appears to be a problem. I
have downloaded the new bootnet.img from updates.redhat.com
and am still seeing the same problem.
