Package: passwd
Version: 1:4.1.5-1
Followup-For: Bug #638263

Dear Maintainer,
After upgrading to passwd 1:4.1.5-1, I found the same issue.
If I run "shadowconfig on", it shows me:
debian-TU:~# shadowconfig on
Usage: grpck [options] [group [gshadow]]

  -h, --help                    display this help message and exit
  -r, --read-only               display errors and warnings
                                but do not change files
  -R, --root CHROOT_DIR         directory to chroot into
  -s, --sort                    sort entries by UID

Shadow passwords are now on.

Could you please fix this?
