Just a quick note on the horrors of cracklib...

If cracklib fails to find it's dictionary, it will exit(1) the server
(or abort(), I can't remember which).  In any case, there will be no
good log entry, only a kpassswd server that no longer exists (I presume
- this is all from my attempts at a cracklib patch for Samba, where that
was considered unacceptable).
