	   First I'm not sure if there is just a fault in my passwd
	   I'd be pleased if you could tell me that it was not or is
	   reproducable at your place.
	   I use a '*' to lock accounts like 'daemon','bin' and I had
	   also locked 'guest' like this. Somebody just pressed 'return'
	   when asked for Password and was let in.

I recall an old bug luck this in an early version of the non-US
`securedist' crypt(3), but I thought it was fixed a long time ago.
