Hello. Can you test the current code from subversion? Use _crypt() instead of
crypt(). The workaround is what Pm suggested earlier:
I just realize that while the workaround should work in broken PHP
installations, once these installations are upgraded and fixed, the saved
passwords may stop working. So, we should probably look for a better solution,
like simply telling people to have passwords of 4 or more characters.
