You didn't provide a log message :-(

Are you aware that the store-password setting is separate from the
--no-auth-cache option? Suggesting that the user sets store-password
to yes is silly, that's already the default and your patch doesn't
change it.

Here's how the current code works: whether auth data is stored is
controlled by the --no-auth-cache command line option. The
store-password setting is only relevant if auth data is being stored.
If auth data is being stored then the username is always stored, but
the password is only stored if store-password allows.

So did you mean to change the store-password behaviour?
