  I will, if I can conclude that this is indeed the problem.  Right now
 it's only a suspicion.  I need to check out another loose end about how
 it's interpreting the encryption of User-Password as well.

  Nevermind me, I have this tendency to run into strange setups that
 can't possibly work..  :-)

  Well, if I could add "\0" to the string and have that be interpreted
 as a zero-byte in the string instead of its terminator, it would be the
 easiest for me.  Of course, that probably causes other problems under
 the hood that I don't really know anything about..

  Thanks for your patience with me, I'll try some more to figure it out.

Kind regards
