This isn't much help, but isn't there a nearly identical set of routines 
to access the pwd.db?  After all lots of users will want to access the 
pwd file but only root may use the spwd.

To the best of my (very limited) knowledge the only difference whether 
the password is encrypted or a "*".  My simple work around was to delete 
spwd.db an ln to it from pwd.

Thanks for considering it in future versions:)
