Description Hung Nguyen 2004-02-09 13:09:42 UTC
Version 3.0.1 & 3.0.2, root could not change users' password by running web-
browser (netscape or IE using http://hostname:901/ connect to SWAT) login as 
root and change user password.  Add or delete users are ok. However, change 
password: display password change for users but nothing changes in 
the ../private/passwd file. Cannot login, cannot connect etc...  I am not sure 
that this is a new feature or not.
