That's gotta be the bug I was running into that you weren't seeing, 
Heinrich, and that I hadn't had time to get a backtrace on just yet.  
Once I update I'll try mutating my password so I can't connect, and 
double-check that I'm no longer getting the segfault, but that sure fits 
what I was seeing, so I'm about as positive as I can be without having 
tested it yet, that' it's the fix I needed.  =:^)
