+Version: unspecified

+Summary: UnixUserInfo.ToPasswd fails when fields are blank
+If you call UnixUserInfo.ToPasswd with empty field(s) (eg
+RealName/pw_gecos) the call will fail with 'Object reference not set to an
+instance of an object'. Thus code like this fails:
+        UnixUserInfo[] userinfo = UnixUserInfo.GetLocalUsers();
+        Passwd[] users = new Passwd[userinfo.Length];
+        for (int i = 0; i < userinfo.Length; i++)
+        {
+            users[i] = userinfo[i].ToPasswd();
+        }
