fedora passwd locking problem


After trying redhat 8.0, 9.0 and fedora 1 & 2 i have the same bad experience with the passwd program, if 2 users select to change password at the same time only one user wil get through, the other one will hang,
it looks like passwd tries to lock passwd,shadow in the beginning, instead of at the end of the dialogue, i can circumvent it by downloading shadow_utils src package and do a make all, this gives me a passwd program which works like i excpect, but why do the passwd on fc1 and fc2 have that multiuser hostile functionality ??

best regards from denmark
