Out of the box, pppd doesn't support shadow passwords when configured for
dialup server.   Rebuilding the src.rpm with shadow support cures this
problem.   However an interim fix at the customers site was to disable
shadow passwords, since this was a non network connected box.   However,
once the passwords were disabled we were unable to set passwords for a new
user.  Go figure. :)

pppd is compiled with support for pluggable authentication modules, which
supports shadow passwords as a configuration option.  What are the contents of
your /etc/pam.d/ppp file?
