I have a VM with CentOs6.2 on KVM.   I mount an image of the VM when it's
not working with guestmount:

root at diehard:~# guestmount -a named-centos.img -i tmp

vi /etc/shadow

insert comment line into the file (esc yy p 0 i # esc :wq!), save changes,
unmount the image, turn on the VM, and I cannot login.

I cannot login even if I recover the shadow file.

root at diehard:~# guestmount --version
guestmount 1.16.15
