SUMMARY: Help with broken passwd patch 5.8 -108993-25

I have spoken to a few people who had a similar problem, with
various suggestions, none of which worked for me properly.

One person had the same patch and it worked fine.

I tracked the problem down to /etc/pam.conf, which after backing out the
patch and adding it again made a backup /etc/pam.conf.

The old /etc/pam.conf had been copied back by someone which seemed to cause
the problem.  Using the new one (we aren't using LDAP on here yet)
fixed it.

Thanks to all who replied...
