For the record, the reason for this restriction isn't SQL encoding, it's that the code to check password syntax is common for all authenticator. Internally, wifidog can deal with any credential taht can be verified against it's md5 hash.

So filling this feature request involves spliting the syntax verification code to make it per-authenticator.

I actually did some further testing, and noticed that this feature was recently implemented between the time I originally tested the source code back in May 2008 or so, and when I finally managed to write up the feature request, a few weeks ago. I thought the platform I was referring to in the bug-report was up-to-date, but I had only updated the wifidog-auth source truck to about mid-August 2008, and not the wifidog source trunk (which was dated from about 2006 or so).

I'm marking this ticket as resolved. (Though I'm not sure how to do this on this system)
