This indeed applies to Debian's passwd(1) man page. Tomasz, what you
have in your CVS upstream seems slightly different. I attach to this
mail the diff between current passwd.1 in your CVS and the one in
Debian. Given its size, you probably need to examine it before

Thanks, Simon, for the patch. We will probably use this occasion to get
both versions of this man page synced again.
