[linux-elitists] pop/ftp and shell

Hmm.. so I was thinking that in order to facilitate a few users who need
pop/ftp and shell access, I would create them two accounts with the same
user ID with one account set to a shell and one set to /bin/false

Then telnet on the box is disabled. So that the insecurely accesible
account cannot attain shell if the password in compromised. Any of you see
issues with this?
