That seems correct to me: with 'store-passwords = no', you're requesting
that the client, well, not store passwords (or more correctly, to cease
caching the password responses to server challenges). That the client
doesn't proactively remove existing passwords from the cache when started
with store-passwords=no is the real bug her, in my opinion (and no,
not one worth worrying about either).
