Package: pwgen
Version: 2.06-1

The option -B is not working correctly.

The manual states for -B:
       -B, --ambiguous
              Don't  use  characters  that could be confused by the user
when printed, such as 'l' and '1', or '0' or
              'O'.  This reduces the number of possible passwords
significantly, and as such reduces the  quality  of
              the  passwords.   It  may be useful for users who have bad
vision, but in general use of this option is
              not recommended.

fixed 516295 pwgen/2.07-1
fixed 574265 pwgen/2.07-1

These two bugs (516295 and 574265) are dups that were fixed in commit
e13c85a77658.   The repro in #516295:

while true; do pwgen --ambiguous --capitalize --num-passwords 1; done |grep 

is no longer emitting any output.
