I suspect this is because the program silently skips a specified
wordfile if it does not exist. It then has a set of wordfiles that
includes the defaults, but does not include the one you specified.

This is done because on some systems, some standard word files do not
exist (e.g. ‘usr/share/cracklib/cracklib-small’) and the program
should therefore ignore them.

I'm interested to know what you would expect in this condition. What
do you think should be the behaviour when a word file is not found?
Error, warning, or something else?
