Is there something somewhere in the rc files that sets the passwd file in /etc to ownership 600?
Seems to happen in Mandrake, RH and Slack!
It'll have to be in the rc scripts yes. Try grepping the files for passwd and chmod and see what you come up with:
grep "/etc/passwd" -R /etc/rc.d | grep chmod
