OK... Looks like it is bailing out after the lines

link("/etc/passwd.2522", "/etc/passwd.lock") = 0
stat64("/etc/passwd.2522", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0600, st_size=5, ...}) = 0

I'll bet the stat64 is filing to show that the file now has 2 links.

As a first step, could you please grab the 2 patches

and see if they fix the problem?
