I too have seen this, but I assumed it you had to
put a random salt key in.  I picked the system
mseconds and put that in a random seed to get a
random salt key.  I was also on Solaris 2.6.
Simple work around if its not supposed to work
that way.

crypt() call always generates string starting from "IH". In case of Solaris 2.6 it 
always starts from "C.".
