Quoting Josh Triplett (josh at freedesktop.org):
> Package: passwd
> Version: 1:4.1.1-6
> Severity: normal
> With the root filesystem read-only, passwd gives the obscure error
> message "Authentication token lock busy", rather than a more useful
> message like "Filesystem read-only".

This is a PAM message:

bubulle at mykerinos:~/src/debian/dpkg/git/po> msgunfmt /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/Linux-PAM.mo |grep -i token
msgid "Authentication token aging disabled"
msgid "Authentication token expired"
msgid "Authentication token is no longer valid; new one required"
msgid "Authentication token lock busy"
