This cannot be the bug you are referring because my passwords are not
being changed. It is not that passwords are being changed but not
reported correctly. The next time I log in, I must use the old password
still. The new one doesn't work. I eventually have to use SWAT to change it.
There is a problem with file permissions in that I am the only one who
seems to have write access. However, I suspect that the root of both
problems lies in whatever is preventing passwords from being changed
