BUG in UNIX password chat

I think there is a bug in the unix password chat. (3.0.3pre2)

If a password contains single or double quotes they are filtered out 
before passing
the new password to the passwd program.

It looks like the reason for this is the usage of next_token() 
(lib/util_str.c) in talktochild() from chgpasswd.c.
Probably you know better than I what function to use instead :-)
