Bug#3018: passwd corrupts passwd file

Package: passwd
Version: 1.0-4

On a system with NIS enabled, when you use passwd to change the
password of a user with an entry in the local passwd file,
the NIS entry '+::::::' at the bottom of the file is removed,
and the results of 'ypcat passwd' at the time are appended
in its place.
