--- Comment #1 from Philip Hands <> ---
Sorry for not doing anything about this bug till now.

I was just trying to reproduce it, before fixing it, and am failing to
do so.

I've tried this by hand, and I note that I'm being prompted for a
password, and simply hitting return does not allow me to log in.

I've also added this to the automated tests:

but (assuming the logs are still there by the time you read this)
you'll see here:

that it prompts for the user's password repeatedly, and the test
doesn't manage to log in, so it also fails to provoke the behaviour.

I'm not aware of any problem with adding a </dev/null but it would be
nice to be able to demonstrate that it's needed.

Cheers, Phil.
