Greetings, I'm having a bit of trouble with non-root user accounts on my
freshly installed Potato. 

I created a new account, eg nick with useradd, and logged into it, at which time I was
prompted for a new password. Fine I thought, makes sense. I changed it, and then logged
into another console, and was prompted to change my password again!

Well, no matter what I do it seems to always require me to change my password on
login; I tried mucking with the expiries, I tried changing the password with passwd
both as root and as nick.. and yet it still claims that the password has expired
after /one use/.

any hints?


as always,

"Have you driven a fnord lately?"
