Ok, my fault. Although I extracted the downloaded etc.tgz and dived
into the dir, I must have issued the absolut pathname when catting
master.passwd. But since you pointed out these files have to be
readable, I gave it another shot and... voila!

Copy original over corrupt ones, do pwd_mkdb, issue new password with
passwd and here we are again.

Thanks Chris
