Since i've updated some account's passwd (say 'jo' and 'jack') to use
the new bcrypt algo:

$ cat /etc/passwd.conf
        localcipher = blowfish,8
        ypcipher = old

I've noticed it break my daily security report. I get:

Checking the /etc/master.passwd file:
Login jo is off but still has a valid shell (/usr/local/bin/ksh93)
Login jack is off but still has a valid shell (/usr/local/bin/ksh93)

But jo and jack are still on... I suppose the new encrypted password
format is the culprit. Did i miss some config point ?
