Problem is in function _local_initshells in file lib/libc/gen/getusershell.c

Function is reading /etc/shells and put every shell path to line[MAXPATHLEN +
It looks like this '/bin/csh\0/usr/local/bin/zsh\0/usr/local/bin/bash', it does
not clean this array (and not set pointer at the beggining) on every iteration
so if we have many lines in /etc/shells it will overflow.

Simple patch is in the attachment. Works for me ;)
