New Version 1.7.30-1: Passwd -R option. Can only update logged in user.

  Recently there was an update to the passwd -R feature in   1.7.30-1 which allows you to pipe in a password to the
  "passwd -R". This is a something that we really need and  the  update is appreciated. :) 
  There is still an issue in that you can only update the   registry for the user that is currently logged in. In
  previous versions (such as 1.7.25), an administrator could   update for any user (although the piping feature was
  unavailable).  In the new version 1.7.30-1, when an attempt to update for   any other user an error is produced stating: Storing
  password failed: No such file or directory.
  Is this something that the Cygwin team would be able to  fix  ? 

 Looking for the ability to pipe in a password and update  the registry with various users password. This functionality
 needs to be incorporated into cloud product. 
The original issue is related to something that Corinna  was   working on. 

I haev screen shots but your email server will not accept them. Please let me know how to send if needed. 
 I appreciate any help or suggestions you can provide.
