I looked at your email again. You said "configured sshd properly" but 
didn't mention what you did.

sshd never looks at the master.passwd directly. It uses getpwent(3) 
functions which use /etc/spwd.db or /etc/pwd.db hashes instead.
So if you edit the master.passwd directly, your changes may not be 
reflected in the real files.

See vipw and pwd_mkdb man pages for more details.
