Not a bug -- if the problem is due to shadow, then I have an older shadow 
package on my box. That gives me a place to start looking. I still have shadow with the fudged build of shared libraries. I presume this is the 
cause of the conflict. I'll have to pick though the changes to find out if I 
can force the package.
