Once again, the list comes through.

The problem is that these accounts had exceeded their max-inactive time,
and were expired. I might have noticed that sooner if it happened more
often. Or maybe not; I'm pretty stupid sometimes.
Casper Dik suggests, btw, that the same problem could be caused by a
corrupted lastlog, but that wasn't the case here.
Thanks once again to Casper Dik, Russell A Weeks <email@example.com>, and
Bob Woodward <firstname.lastname@example.org> for your rapid assistance.
