I cannot find nicolas.francios at centraliens.net on README.
You must have a cut & paste issue.

I never used the web interface to report a bug.
I can't fix this in the shadow package.

I will fix this in the next version to indicate that the default is 'no'.

The automatic bugreport tool on Debian is named reportbug.
You usually only have to indicate the name of the package you are
reporting a bug on.
Finding our on the library which cause some issues might take some
time. You may report you bug on the program which use the various libraries
and move the workload to the maintainer of the program, but that might not
be welcomed.
