Description Gabor Garami 2008-05-10 19:17:33 UTC
Finger swaps the phone numbers if you set all phone number entry with chfn and you use a default pam authentication (/etc/passwd).

1. finger yourusername
2. Set all phone entry with chfn 
3. finger your username

Result: Office phone and Home phone are swapped (Home phone will be an "Other" phone, and Office phone shows your Office and Home phone).
