Revision 1.18 of pw_util.c (fix for security advisory "chpass" 00:58)
introduces a cosmetic bug which manifests itself as such:

        > passwd
        Changing local password for dima.
        Old password:
        passwd: (null): Permission denied
        passwd: /etc/master.passwd: unchanged

Only machines *not* using NIS will display this, since passwd(1) acts
differently when changing an NIS password.  Trivial patch to fix this
is attached below.
