Description iusty 1999-07-27 05:46:57 EDT
1. I do passwd -l <user>  and it does the right job -
prepending ! to the password in /etc/shadow
2. I do passwd -u <user> and sometimes,after removing the !,
it appends a few chars to the encripted password, rendering
the account unusable until a password change.
I use shadow passwords, no MD5, no nis, platform is i386.
Is repetable on user with 8 char password, on a user with 2
char is not reproducible.
Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-08-23 21:03:59 EDT
should be fixed in passwd-0.59 in rawhide
