recent rshd/mkpasswd

I've been noticing lately ( post 1.3.2 I beleive)  that the result of
mkpasswd -d doesn't allow me to perform non-interactive
rsh or rcp's.

dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> rsh gable3 ls
gable3: Permission denied.

But if I use my previous passwd file  (I generate these proceduraly nightly
on a 1.3.2 machine,  then dist to all of my other machines) everything works

dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> rsh gable3 ls -al
total 38333
drwxrwxrwx   10 Administ Domain A    12288 Jan  9 17:11 .
drwxrwxrwx  834 Administ Domain A   172032 Dec 11 17:52 ..
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain A      284 Jun  8  2001 .ICEauthority
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain A     5834 Jan 30 17:39 .bash_history
-rwxrwxrwx   10 Administ Domain A     6913 May  4  2001 .cshrc
-rwxrwxrwx    1 Administ Domain A      747 Jan 30 17:58 .history

The relevant passwd entries are:

dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> grep dobrin passwd.1.3.2
dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> grep dobrin passwd.1.3.9

CYGWIN variable :  binmode tty ntsec

I haven't found anything on the list about changes,  but I've also been
having problems lately getting complete listings when I do a google search
(for instance I just did a google search of "dobrin" and it
didn't bring up any of my recent list additions....  I hope I haven't asked
so many stupid questions that I'm being filtered    :)        )

Thanks for any help

Bruce Dobrin
