  That is non-standard...

  Anyways... if you're getting that message, it's because:

  1) you're using a very old version of the server
     a) you edited the configuration files to enable the rlm_unix cache


  2) you're using 2.x, and the FreeBSD libc is refusing to parse that
line of the "passwd" file, and is returning that message.
