 If "fields are blank" were the actual problem, this would produce an
 error; it doesn't.  Using `null' instead of "" also yields no error.
 (Glancing at the source doesn't help either, as .ToPasswd() calls
 .CopyPasswd(), which just creates a new Passwd() instance, copies over
 the fields, and returns it.  I can't see any way for this to fail.)

+Wow, thanks for the lightning fast response!
+Perhaps the problem is with reading from the system rather than the
+object itself?
+This works:
+This doesn't:
+For the time being I've just stuffed the password file with 'x's but
+that's not going to help me at deployment time.
+Where is this code at by the way, I tried to hunt it down last night
+but to no avail.
