Oh, ah, yes, that was a bug we fixed post-1.7.1, sadly:

commit 896f07bf3c08becc06a881f57fb0ad2160819d45

    ruserpass.c: Return the password typed by the user.
    Darren Provine reported that entering the password didn't work.  This
    was due to ruserpass() failing to set the password.  Fixes 1d4977af.

Which suggests to me we are overdue for a new release (I'm going on a
long-overdue vacation, so I will revisit that in a couple of weeks).
