I had this to, but I don't recall precisely how I solved it. From dpkg's
--help and --force-helps, I gather that it would be something like
dpkg --force-remove-essential --auto-deconfigure -i newloginpackage.deb
should work; if not, you'd have to break this up in two steps (first
--force-remove-essential --remove shadowlogin, then _in the same session_ -i
the new login package).
