PC, Linux SuSE 7.3
By converting gnats3 passwords to crypted passwords, "gnats-conv" returns: "salt" and "crypt() function return value". The crypt() function returns 13 printable characters and the first 2 characters already represent the "salt". So we have the salt twice. Therefore there will be a problem by checking passwords.

In gnats-pwconv.c, change "result=asprintf(newpwentry, "%s%s",salt,crypt(clearpwstring,salt));" to "result=asprintf(newpwentry, "%s",crypt(clearpwstring,salt));"
