...and there's no ASCII password?
Unicode Plaintext is a very unusual combination. I have tested this
combination before (Samba can be made to do it) but since we've never had
anything to test against...

Tcpdump is perfect. :)
Oh! ...but use a bogus password, or change the password after you've
captured the data. I don't want your "real" auth data. :)
Send directly to me, please. If anyone else on the Team wants a look I'll
share. I may run it past a few other folks as well, and I would love to
have the information for my book.
