A distant memory

I seem to remember reading somewhere that fingerprints were not actually unique, close to it yes, but not enough that you couldn't get two people with ones than matched within the normal range of any person's medium term variation.

Related to that, does the reader account for such variations and self-modify to correct for trends?
