Unfortunatly this isn't the case.

As I suspected, DMPSYSOBJ (and probably also DMPOBJ but I haven't tested it) 
have been, shall we say, 'doctored' so as not to dump out the data for the 
index entries in the QSYUPTBL index.

The data is still there, and on changing passwords, the data *is* changed...

As for the Doug's question on the API, yes this still works the same - it 
would require too much work to change across all the currently supported 
releases of OS/400 to make a change like that.
