I'm not sure how you reopen a PR or if you are supposed to send a new PR

Here goes,
I'm not able to chown a dir/file what-have-you with the user nobody
[thib at caulfield ~]$ chown nobody foo
chown: nobody: Invalid argument

[thib at caulfield ~]$ fgrep nobody /etc/passwd 
nobody:*:65534:65534:Unprivileged user:/nonexistent:/usr/sbin/nologin
I rebuild chown with CFLAGS= -g and verified that this is the same
proplem as bin/63160
<gdb session snipplet>
(gdb) step
261             val = strtoul(name, &ep, 10);
(gdb) step
262             if (errno)
(gdb) step
263                     err(1, "%s", name);
(gdb) step
chown: nobody: Invalid argument

Program exited with code 01.

This is happening on:
FreeBSD 6.0-RC1 FreeBSD 6.0-RC1 #0: Sun Oct  9
20:32:57 UTC 2005     root at x64.samsco.home:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC	i386

dmesg is attached.

Please CC me for I'm not on the list.
