Nice, but you'll need to change how you compare the username in login.callback:

cookie.get( 'userpass' ).indexOf( document.getElementById( ' +user' ).value ) != 0
should un-URL-encode the cookie's value. For a quick (local) fix so I could log in, I changed it to:
cookie.get( 'userpass' ) .replace(/%25/g, '%') .replace(/%20/g, ' ') .indexOf( document.getElementById( 'user' ).value ) != 0
You'll want to do more than just that though for future releases.

    Duh, of course. Thanks for catching that. Doing it at the comparison point is wrong though, the real fix is to de-escape the URI encoding for cookie data when it's parsed. That means simply:

    --- pmchatter.html.old 2004-12-19 17:05:59.000000000 +0100 +++ pmchatter.html 2004-12-19 17:05:13.000000000 +0100 @@ -17,3 +17,3 @@ var kv = record[ i ].split( /=/ ); - this.data[ kv[ 0 ] ] = kv[ 1 ]; + this.data[ decodeURIComponent( kv[ 0 ] ) ] = d +ecodeURIComponent( kv[ 1 ] ); } @@ -63,3 +63,3 @@ if( userpass.length ) { - req.setRequestHeader( 'Cookie', 'userpass=' + userpass + ); + req.setRequestHeader( 'Cookie', 'userpass=' + encodeUR +IComponent( userpass ) ); }

    I updated the root node.

    Update: it wasn't quite as trivial — need to re-escape the cookie to send it, of course.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Good point. I hadn't really studied it much other than looking for where the login "failed" for me.

        But then I forgot to re-escape the cookie… patch and root node updated.
