Config file for busybox.

I am getting a wrong behavior using passwd & chpasswd. After command is
executed, uid of user is changed.
Uid is change by the value in “last password change”, stored in 3rd field of

Before password change:

After password change:

Tested in busybox: 1.19.4, 1.20.0, 1.21.0

How do I have to compile busybox to get the right behavior?

The emmbeded device is based on the at91sam9261ek.
If i build the rootfs image with root password and then i change the password
for root with passwd i dont get this error.
