SCO OpenSERVER 5 exhibits a similar hole, the default login program doesn't prompt 
you for old passwd once it has expired. And with the many 
passwd-file-stealing-exploits its not hard to get the file, then analyze it to find 
which accounts have expired passwords (This data is kept in the last few characters 
of the password field). This is a pretty big hole, and jack0's post reminded me of
