Actually, the idea behind this is:
1) /etc/shells should contain all ``full access'' shells on the system.
2) If a user has a shell that is not listed there, it is assumed that
it's a custom restricted shell.
3) That means, that ftpd doesn't like such users, or chsh for example
doesn't work, because these assume, that a security break.
