> You are aware that this is the passwd program is prompting for the new password for root, not sudo asking for the current password for root, aren't you?

I wasn't aware of that possibility and it definitely wasn't the case here. The system has a single root user and several non-root users, I don't use the root account for anything but system maintenance.

map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
