Summary0005167: newgrp fails with password
DescriptionJoining new group with the commando newgrp fails for groups with password.
Steps To Reproduce# useradd tom
# gpasswd wheel
# su - tom
$ newgrp wheel
Password:
Invalid password.


Additional InformationLogfile /var/log/secure reports:
newgrp[4552]: Invalid password for group 'wheel' from 'tom'

To fix the problem I compiled rpm shadow-utils-4.1.4.2-13.fc15.src.rpm, stolen
from fed15 on centos6 and did an update with the new package shadow-utils-4.1.4.2-13.el6.x86_64.rpm.
