We got a bug report to newusers, a part of shadow-4.0.17, which is a part of 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.0. 

I created a patch, which can be downloaded from our bugzilla

The bug is still reproducible in 4.1.0. Unfortunately, this patch can't be 
applied to the current version of newusers. I would like to try to re-write 
it to fit with current version, but it will not be earlier than Fedora 9 will 
be released (lots of work on Fedora nowdays).

If you want to, you can fix it earlier...

with greetings,
