Bug#3244: (no subject)

Subject: Changing wrong password

Package: passwd
Version: 1.0-4

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 -
namib!root:~# passwd
Changing password for joey
Enter new password:
Re-type new password:
You misspelled it. Password not changed.
