But it's $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd that's significant to CVS, not
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd,v which is what you checkout.  passwd is *NOT*
intended to be managed by CVS (doing so creates numerous security
problems), so the version in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd is not
automatically updated when you check in changes like the other
administrative files are (unless you've added it to checkoutlist).
