RedHat IA64 RC1: wu-ftp server will not login a valid user

Description of Problem:
Steps to Reproduce:
Sorry, hit the wrong button.....
I installed RedHat IA64 RC1 and afterwards installed wu-ftp as the ftp server.
I then edited the /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftpd file and changed
"disable = yes" to "disable = no" and restarted xinetd. When I try to ftp it
connects, but it will always say that my password is not valid. The user in
question can login just fine from any tty, but the ftp server for some reason
has a security issue with it.
The procedure I used above to enable the ftp server works fine for i386 Redhat
7.1, which seems to be identicle to the IA64 config.
I saw the same issue with Beta 3 IA64 as well.
Do you see any reasons for this behavior in /var/log/messages?
wu-ftpd usually logs why an access failed.
You can close this issue:
Notes from one of my engineers:
I finally found my problem thru searching bugzilla. /etc/shells has the wrong
permissions and I had to set it to 644 and now everything seems ok.
