Bug#4607: passwd segfaults if no finger info specified
On one of my systems, passwd will segmentation fault after entering
the new password if no finger information is present for the user
in /etc/passwd. Typescript:
Script started on Sat Sep 28 00:28:35 1996
New password (? for help):
Script done on Sat Sep 28 00:28:46 1996
A user entry from /etc/passwd;
when hamish changes his password, passwd will segfault as above.
No problem if root changes hamish's password.
I am unable to duplicate this on my own Debian system.
passwd is 1.0-5, libc is 5.2.18-9.
