Password changind from client machines (passwd, yppasswd) does not accept old password in "secure mode"

when in makefile the "INSECURE?=" is commented out, changing passwd [<anyuser>] will cause the error

A temporary workaround is to uncomment out the
line in /var/yp/<domain>/Makefile; touch /etc/master.passwd; make
but this process will cause the passwords to be visible via ypcat passwd
