The error message is misleading (I'm trying to come up with a good
clarification).  The error means that we could not decrypt the password
buffer, which is encrypted with the user's previous password. 

(This ensures that the clear-text password is not seen on the network).

What we need to be clear on is what *exact* versions of the client and
server this happens on.  A network trace of the failed operation would
also be good.
