  I agree that nsss_unix_shadow_get should be fixed, but I
disagree with the patch, because the patched version will also
accept entries with invalid numeric values (if you have letters
in them, for instance).
  I'll come up with a fix that accepts empty fields but still rejects
invalid ones.
  Thanks for the report!
