I do not understand the password business
are you sending a fixed same password each time ?

the whole idea in acedb 4.7 is that the user has to provide
a key encrypted differently each time and security comes from
the fact that the user must gain access to some nfs disk to 
know the key

i agree that forcing nfs access was annoying
but i thought you had a way to prevent listening to the
password by a one time encription sytem

is that not so ?
