Not that I don't believe you, but when does crypt() return NULL? My
manpage here says it returns a pointer to static data -- so running out
of memory shouldn't be an issue, right? Or does crypt() have to
allocate memory to do the encryption part?

How do you handle the error? I can't think what the Right Thing to do
in this situation is. Time out and try again, or just fail?
