I've been poking around in the databases...

In the virgin RT4 database (the one we created from scratch) the password
field is varchar(256).

In the converted RT3->RT4 database the password field is varbinary(40).

In the original RT3 database, the password field is varbinary(40).

I don't know enough about mysql but that doesn't seem right.  Can some
mysql gurus clue me in?

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year,
but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If
I quit, however, it lasts forever.
