The version in etch, 3.67 (same version in unstable, according to
packages.qa.debian.org). The following is the error messages I get, I've
attached the entire piuparts log file (the log is for bcron-run, which
tries to use adduser).

  chage: can't open shadow password fileadduser: `/usr/bin/chage -M
99999 cron'
returned error code 1.  Aborting.
