Description David Lawrence 1999-09-18 19:08:26 UTC
If you enter your current password and then enter your
current password again in the new password box, it seg

If you enter your current password and then enter a new
password it does not alter your password at all.

Could not reproduce this on a non-NIS system.  Were you trying to
change your password on a system that is using NIS?

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-09-22 00:44:59 UTC
I'm going to assume that this particular instance was fixed, between
the pwdb fixes that gafton did earlier and the recent malloc fixes
in usermode-1.15, unless I hear otherwise.  I definitely can no longer
reproduce this or any similar problem at this time, to the best of
my knowledge.
