Quoting Simon Waters (simon at technocool.net):
> Package: passwd
> Version: 1:18.104.22.168+svn3283-2+squeeze1
> Severity: wishlist
> On changing a regular system password using the passwd command if the user
> types their old password wrong they receive the error:
> passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
> The language here seems unnecessary technical, or at least omits an
> explanation in clearer English like:
> "Authentication token manipulation error (did you type your old password correctly?)"
I think that this message is not coming from passwd but from the
relevant PAM module.
