wu-ftpd (shadow) broken?

I'm running linux-2.0.8, recent libc/binutils and so forth, and what
happens is when I compile wu-ftpd it just exits immediately upon
connecting to port 21:

Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 micro.internexus.net FTP server (Version wu-2.4(5) Fri Jul 26 00:54:24
EDT 1996) ready.
221 Server shutting down. Goodbye.
Connection closed by foreign host.

I had to make one change to the source (src/glob.c, line 240) I wasn't
able to fix it so I just commented that one line out (doesn't relate to
this problem anyway)

Any clue why its closing immediately? On #linux someone mentioned this is
a known problem, or at least one other soul out there has experienced it.
If someone can let me know where to find a safe shadowed in.ftpd binary in
the meantime I would appreciate it. All the official linux distributions
appear to come with unshadowed installations.
