Change error message when password is expired

When trying to login and your password is expired on the Linux server, WinSCP responds with an error stating incompatible shell BASH recommended. I imagine this is because when the system tries to force a password reset, you are not fully logged in and WinSCP drops the connection because it is unable to function as normal. If possible, can you please change the error to show as password is expired? It would be great if we could reset it from that connection as well, but just getting the proper error message would be great! I appreciate anything you could do for this, thank you!

Re: Change error message when password is expired

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
