Bug#3244: (no subject)
Subject: Changing wrong password
Good day folks,
recently I noticed that the password program doesn
t change the password it should. If I su and call passwd
the root password isn't changed, but my user password.
I think (?!) this can be fixed by looking at the uid/euid
when trying to find out for which user the program should work.
Here's an excerpt:
namib!joey:~> su -
Changing password for joey
Enter new password:
Re-type new password:
You misspelled it. Password not changed.
