Hello list,

I've come across that trying to set a password for a non existing user
displays this error:

# passwd foobar
Changing password for foobar.
Unable to change auth token: failed to recover old authentication token

instead of displaying that the user doesn't exists.

I'm running current as of July 3rd (4.99.22), but I noticed this bug a
while ago.
