Hi there.

update_usersfile does not only update the usersfile but also overwrites
owner/permissions. this is bad (i think in general). in particular this
is a show stopper for the private usersfile implementation (which is not
complete yet).

the attached patch works around this in my case, but may fail. for
example chown requires some privileges...

i don't know how to seamlessly update a file in place, maybe the proper
solution is to not replace that file at all.
