The latest public firmware for the 3550 is 3+ years old,  FWIW, and the
newer one I grabbed before they yanked it off the site wasn't much newer.

IIRC (it was long ago) the hack was needed because the IETF attrib value is supposed
to be a string, but the ciscos were expecting a binary integer encoding.

I'll have to give the newer loads another whack at a straight authentication at
some point and see if it indeed is fixed, but the hack works on the newer
loads as well.
