That is odd.  The migrate database should have set it to varchar(256), at least that is how our mysql database, imported 3.8.6 and upgraded to 4.0.2, is on the password field as well.  Did you have any errors on the migration sequence?

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.
