Not sure if it's anywhere near related, but I've had issues like that
with linux when I was experimenting with PAM, Shadow, and cracklib. If
you have been messing with that stuff it may be a similar problem.
AFAIK the issue was a shadow bug, which was fixed in releases that
followed. Just mentioning it in case...
