I have tried it, still no login.

It seems that the feature has been removed in 4.0b4. It's a non-issue
though; I can digest the password using "md5sum" on my machine.

BTW, my test password was generated using md5sum; ie: I had a file
containing the pasword (cat > test.pwd; 12345<ctrl-d><ctrld>; makes me
wonder why it should be twice) and ran it through the md5sum (md5sum <
test.pwd). Then, I put it on the database. I already have a password
database setup for James using MD5; so that I'd like to use it for
Tomcat too.

MD2? Would that mean going back through time?
Besides, there's no md2sum on my machine. Ouch.
