This should have worked. My guess is that you made a typo on the command line. Please try again. If you continue to run into this problem, please copy & paste an excerpt of your shell session into a followup posting to this mailing list. The excerpt should show the specific filenames you have (e.g., run "dir" in a "DOS window", or "ls -l" in bash if you have Cygwin installed), your "unshadow ..." command, and its exact output (please do use copy & paste, don't just re-type what you see into an e-mail message). I hope this helps. Alexander
