Okay this error can also occur if the connection was down at the time
To try and differentiate I have modified the auth code for 1.2
Now is will log
User $uname at $udom rejected by $uhome
For incorrect passwords
For unknown user names:
User $uname at $udom is unknown in authenticate
User $uname at $udom threw error $answer when checking authentication
Whenever is gets something unexpected.
