Hmm. Something's definitely wrong on the machine. I tried running
dpkg-reconfigure passwd to check the settings and saw this:
no matching group file entry in /etc/gshadow
add group `man' in /etc/gshadow? no matching group file entry in /etc/gshadow
add group `plugdev' in /etc/gshadow? grpck: no changes
Please correct the error and rerun `/sbin/shadowconfig on'
I recently upgraded the machine to unstable. Perhaps something
happened during that process.
rlb @defaultvalue.org and @debian.org; previously @cs.utexas.edu
