Bug#1708: `passwd' not interruptible when invoked by `adduser'

Package: adduser? miscutils?
Version: adduser (1.94-1), miscutils (1.3-2)

If I run adduser, and then decide to abort after having been presented
with the password prompt, I can't do it with ^C.  passwd apparently
ignores ^C, and ^D simply produces another passwd prompt.  Presumably
I would have to type in a password twice to escape; instead, I used
another terminal and killed the adduser process.
