sshd keybased only, still wants shadow

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello All,

I am trying to run FSecure's sshd ( with UID!=0,
using key-based auth only (no passwd based auth at all).
At debug level 3 I see that sshd still tries to read /etc/shadow,
and, obviously failing that, refuses to proceed, saying
"system policy denies login of user xyzxyz"

I have bybassed it now by hacking the source code, but would
rather use some smarter way in the future. Any ideas?
