   Hi, this is ishizuka at ish.org.
 
   I tested this patch for 5.1-BETA-20030514-JPSNAP and I think
 this patch is good for 5.1-BETA.
   The test procedure is as follows.
 
 (1) create 5000 new accounts in /etc/master.passwd.
 
   % su
   # sh
   $ uid=10000
   $ while [ $uid -lt 15000 ]; do
   >   echo "test$uid:*:$uid:$uid::0:0:User &:/nonexistent:/sbin/nologin" >> /tmp/users.txt
   >   uid=$(($uid+1))
   > done
   $ vipw
   :$
   :r /tmp/users.txt
   :wq
   $ wc -l /etc/master.passwd /etc/passwd
 
 (2) create 100 accounts more with pw command as follows.
 
   $ uid=20000
   $ while [ $uid -lt 20100 ]; do
   >   pw useradd test$uid -u $uid -d /nonexistent -s /sbin/nologin -h - &
   >   uid=$(($uid+1))
   > done
 
 (3) Wait until (2) is done.
 
 (4) Count lines for /etc/master.passwd and /etc/passwd
 
   $ wc -l /etc/master.passwd /etc/passwd
 
 
   Before applying this patch, /etc/master.passwd and /etc/passwd are
 broken, After this patch is applied, they are not broken.
