Why would that be a serious drawback? I mean the same applies to the
auth data cached right now, and I've never heard of a drawback (except
for that data not being encrypted, but that's another issue and
something which is taken care of in 1.2 on windows).
Can you provide maybe some examples why this would be a drawback?
