Description of problem:
Type passwd to change some account's password, and you see a string like
Value: '8'Value: '4'Value: '3'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'
printed to the screen cluttering the usual 'Changing password for...'
and 'New password' prompts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter 'passwd' at the bash prompt
Changing password for user xxx.
Value: '8'Value: '4'Value: '3'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Changing password for xxx.
(current) UNIX password:
Value: '8'Value: '4'Value: '3'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'Value: '0'New password:
No debug output.
I suppose that what is printed is debug stuff from/related with libpwquality.
