FS#3022 - pam compiled with invalid CRACKLIB_DICTPATH

This seems to be a leftover from days when pam was bundled with cracklib. Try the following /etc/pam.d/passwd

password required retry=3 debug
password sufficient shadow md5 nullok use_authtok
password required

And you will get the following error when changing executing /usr/bin/passwd:

Aug 1 11:49:59 myhost PAM-Cracklib[426]: dict path ''[.pwd] is invalid

Thanks Jürgen, I will take care of pam tomorrow anyway and release a new version to testing tomorrow. So I will incorporate that.

I just saw that Judd already fixed that in the testing versions. So technically it's done, we just wait until the necxt testing cycle hits the repos.
