Debian 2.2 (potato) default install checks for this:

Mkey. During futher investigations I've found recent RH releases (6.2 and
7.0) seems to be not affected by this problem. But, as numerous systems
are still based on older releases, and there were no security advisories
on this silently fixed problem, shadow-utils might be still used in
previous versions.

Short info about shadow package because few weeks ago maintainer was
changed:
- latest shadow package is 20001016,
- main ftp site for shadow is ftp://ftp.pld.org.pl/software/shadow/,
- cvs repository is on cvs.pld.org.pl:
  :pserver:cvs () cvs pld org pl:/cvsroot shadow module (with empty password)
- browseable cvsweb interface is on:
  http://cvsweb.pld.org.pl/index.cgi/shadow/ or
  http://cvs.pld.org.pl/shadow/

If anyone have some remarks to maintainer please mail me.
