I recently had the same problem, and I solved it by forcing
the system crypt to be loaded before the openssl one.  Then
I had the same problem again with other packages linking
openssl's crypt intead of the system's one, and I had to
rebuild openssl with the system's crypt.  I definitely agree
it must be a Debian's problem.
