Hi chris,

I couldn't find a way to do this, so I copied change_pw to change_mod_pw 
and changed the following line: 

            mlist.Bpassword = shapassword


            mlist.mod_password = shapassword

And that worked like a charm.

But seriously, this is what I ended up doing. I can only imagine that 
someone else is already adding this is change_pw, so I won't bother 
submitting a patch for this, but this worked well for those who have the 
same need I do.
