That's normal for passwords using the standard unix crypt() function (like
"aI24pyUVhurNU" in /etc/shadow) and can be avoided by using md5 passwords
(like "$1$6E9lY9qv$KsAJ8K7yPlkdQoQurSds/0" in /etc/shadow) or maybe an
authentication other than /etc/shadow.
Read the docs in /usr/share/doc/passwd and "man 3 crypt".
