How do we change group information while this bug is there? Do we disable pam or do we just edit /etc/group in the interim?
Patch shadow your self w/ aforementioned gentoo patch. works fine after building w/ the patch.
In the interim, and I know there will be howls against doing it, but I simply edited /etc/passwd and /etc/group and set the gid to what I needed. Worked fine. /etc/shadow doesn't appear to hold any group information so I think I found all the needed files. Right now it is just a one user system and subsequent to the gid change, I added the group that needed the gid with groupadd and it worked like a champ. Anybody see any "you just broke this -- stupid..." issues?
