Thanks to O. Hartmann promptly reporting this, it was discovered that
'installworld' on revisions r299292-r299317 will silently replace
/etc/passwd, /etc/master.passwd, and /etc/group with the defaults.  It
is possible there are other files affected.  One file I can think of
off-hand is /etc/mail/aliases, but in my development system, did not
have local changes to this, so cannot 100% confirm.

Please avoid this range of revisions.

I am very sorry this went unnoticed before this change was committed.
