There are several password systems today that actually use a "pass-phrase"
instead of a single word.

We don't cache passwords for any of our systems or our clients for obvious
reasons.  The CPF1269 message is misleading and the license acquisition
message CWBLM0006 didn't help either.  I sure feel sorry for people who
don't have the time or expertise to solve this.
