Persistent password reset problem: Debian


I run Debian on an embedded ARM system, and have set up a single user account. Every time I log in as that user, I am instructed to change the password. How can I stop that occurring please?

The machine is regularly shut down using SHUTDOWN –H NOW, is this the problem (can’t see why it should be though…)?

With root login, the problem isn’t there.

TIA

Maybe my query isn't clear. Every time I log in I'm prompted for a *change* in password.
