A shadow-utils update has been released for Fedora Core 3

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : shadow-utils
Version : 4.0.3
Release : 56
Summary : Utilities for managing accounts and shadow password files.
Description :
The shadow-utils package includes the necessary programs for converting UNIX password files to the shadow password format, plus programs for managing user and group accounts. The pwconv command converts passwords to the shadow password format. The pwunconv command unconverts shadow passwords and generates an npasswd file (a standard UNIX password file). The pwck command checks the integrity of password and shadow files. The lastlog command prints out the last login times
for all users. The useradd, userdel, and usermod commands are used for managing user accounts. The groupadd, groupdel, and groupmod commands are used for managing group accounts.

Update Information:

A regression has been fixed where strict enforcement of POSIX rules for user and group names prevented Samba 3 from using its "add machine script" feature with useradd. Also, the maximum length for a username/groupname is now 31 (previously it was 32). The lastlog command can now handle extremely large (greater than 4GB) lastlogs.
