Authentication question

Working with CVS HEAD, when I set encrypt password = no, and I configured
--with-pam, a client connection from a Win2000 machine is failing the unix
password authentication check, because the password is apparently an empty
string (1 byte long, the '\0' byte).  But the user most definitely entered
a password (and the log also shows that that there is an 'lm' password sent
(length properly set as 24 bytes) (reply to a random challenge).

Is this supposed to work yet on the CVS HEAD version (since it did work on
2.x), or is this still being worked on?

Never underestimate a Mage with:
 - the Intelligence to cast Magic Missile,
 - the Constitution to survive the first hit, and
 - the Dexterity to run fast enough to avoid being hit a second time.
