I have a problem concerning password aging on SuSE 6.3. If a password
expires the user is prompted for the new password at the login time. The
problem is that he/she can enter an empty one just by hitting Enter twice.
No checks for minimum password lenght, no cracklib checks - and these are
enabled in etc/login.defs. Changing the password from the prompt works
normally with all the checks in effect.
So, is there a way to enable atleast the minimum password lenght
check? Any comments and/or suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards, Daniel.
