Er, it's not:

        if ! [ -e $ROOT/etc/passwd ]; then
                return 1
        fi

This returns 1 if it _doesn't_ exist.

                elif ! root_password; then

So if there's no $ROOT/etc/password, root_password will return false,
and this confitional will succeed, and it will go on to check for a
preseeded root password. Seems like the right thing to do..
