Problem description

Steve Grubb found some problems in the passwd program. Passwords given to passwd via stdin are one character shorter than they are supposed to be. He also discovered that pam may not have been sufficiently initialized to ensure safe and proper operation. A few small memory leaks have been fixed as well. The updated packages are patched to correct these problems.
