now Im unable to login with my regular username, or to su - to it

the segfault happens when su-ing from joe to bob,

Also - on the X session still running there, where previously opened
'joeuser' windows are present, the bash prompt changed to
"[I have no name!@xxxxxxx]", and xterm title now shows 500, my userid
from /etc/passwd (which is dated 4/13, so presumably un-mangled).

chown 644 /etc/passwd should resolve your I have no name prompt to normal again. I think then you may find that most of your stuff is back to normal. Try this out.

damn, youre good !

I chmod'd it (to match passwd-, BTW), new windows open with joe-user, su works.

thanks !

have you been there before ? Any guess how passwd got 600'd ? Part of the rpm -i --force ?
