 As usual, I'm not sure if this constitutes a security bug, but
we'll probably fix this nevertheless if we get the opportunity.

Please use CVE-2013-0188 for this issue.

In general I think we take a strict line on password parsing, I can
see programs that might create new accounts with a NULL password
especially on the theory that the front end/etc forces a password to
be entered that isn't NULL.
