Hi,

I hope, I`m not nerving :) I decided to do it like
this: having account on
the system and in cvspasswd. These are synchronized
with a script.
Surprisingly, something strange happens with cvs passwd
command:

$ /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /vol1/cvsroot passwd -a jwitte
-u jwitte -i info -m
jwitte@project49.de

This command adds a user in cvspasswd.

$ /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /vol1/cvsroot passwd -e jwitte

Enables this user ("Enabled") in cvspasswd

$ /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /vol1/cvsroot passwd -p jwitte
To change the password: doesn`t work - prints out usage
information

$ /usr/local/bin/cvs -d /vol1/cvsroot -x jwitte
cvs [passwd aborted]: User jwitte not found

Why this? The user is definitly there!

Am I wrong, or is it a bug?
