I'm aware of this since I built the package initially :) I am planning on
rebuilding it shortly, but can't test it unfortunately since I don't have
shadow passwords on my system. I'll let you know when I post the fixed
version (should be soon).

For now, posting problems that are Alpha-related here is the best thing.
Most of the maintainers don't have access to an Alpha to build their
packages on, so we end up patching them and building them ourselves.
Eventually, this will be solved with fakeroot and some "accessible"
machines for maintainers, but until then, most of them won't even know
about the Alpha packages.

I can rebuild it here and plan on doing it today. I'll let you know when
it's done :)
