was not found to scan the gecos field for any partial information it could
match on.  Is it possible that the '.' and '@' are just forms of a regular
expression or wildcard matching?  If so then how many other wildcards are
there to grep the password file?

`.' is  regexp.  The characters that I know that are either regexps or
wildcards are: `.', `+', `*', `[', `]', `-', `?', `{', `}', `|', `^',
`(', `)'.  egrep(1), sh(1), and perl(1) describe them.

I don't know if `@' is in the above set.
