I have an office with 6 machines. Yesterday I updated
the root password on the boxes. Today, I was able to
get into ALL of them in Webmin using the OLD password.

Obviously the "Same as Unix" option for user's password
is reading the "current" password and saving it.

That's not what one expects just from reading "Same as
Unix". That option should mean "Always check against
the machine's current Unix password".

    Yeah, the 'same as unix' password option only gets
    kept in sync if you change the root password though
    webmin itself. If you want it to be in sync no matter what,
    you need to setup PAM authentication, as explained in
    the FAQ at http://www.webmin.com/faq.html
