Package: linuxconf
Version:  1.17r5-2

we have a problem in conjunction with the following (?) packages:

login          19990827-20
libpam-modules 0.72-9
libpam-runtime 0.72-9
libpam0g       0.72-9
linuxconf      1.17r5-2

we use:

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2  with 2.2.18-raid-mosix (custom kernel with raid
and mosix patches for kernel 2.2.18).


we have a unix group on the system where the line defining the group in
/etc/group is around 180  characters long. manipulating the group
definition with linuxconf the line is split with \  after approximately
90 characters . this has the effect that users who are listed after the
split will not be in this group after login. nevertheless they can
become a member of the `missing' group with the newgrp command. if I
eliminate the split by hand, such that the definition is a single line,
everything is fine again.

It seems that the program(s) doing the login/authentication (from the
login/pam packages?) has (have) a problem with the parsing of splitted
lines in the group file, but  newgrp (login package) does not seem to
have it? A fix depends on whichever of login/pam/linuxconf one may judge
to be the `culprit', but maybe fixing linuxconf to write `proper' lines
to /etc/group is the easier fix ...

Quoting the upstream changelog for 1.18r1:

    Group edition: member list

                /etc/group is not rewritten using to break long lines.
