Current implementation in 1.3.6rc2 looks like this:

static void ensure_open_passwd(pool *p) {
  /* Make sure pass/group is open. */

  /* On some unices the following is necessary to ensure the files
   * are open (BSDI 3.1)

  /* Per Debian bug report:
   *   https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=717235
   * we might want to do another set{pw,gr}ent(), to play better with
   * some NSS modules.

I guess I can simply replace the ensure_open_passwd() function in
1.3.5 by than one, right? Please confirm, patch will be in next
upload then.
