Robert,

may I ask why your new reentrant functions ignore the pw_gecos
field? You know that it's very important when using ntsec?

Chris, I assume that it's not a showstopper but I will patch
it for 1.3.2.  My upcoming changes to the security code will
need reentrant getpwxxx and getgrxxx functions.
