It works for me (running Debian Etch):
19:16 news at trigofacile ~/bin/auth/passwd% ./ckpasswd -f /home/news/etc/users-ssl -u test -p test
19:16 root at trigofacile /home/news/bin/auth/passwd# ./ckpasswd -f /home/news/etc/users-ssl -u test -p test
I kept the default:
19:18 root at news /etc/pam.d# cat other
