    Hi guys,

    Using the Accounting PHP module I've got it setup so accounts are automatically created.
    However we've come across a potential bug.

    User specifies the password: random-!"#
    Account gets created.

    For some reason Cpanel appears to have stored it in the database as follows:


    Note the escape string before the double-quotes.
    Now, the user obviously originally entered it WITHOUT the quote, but in order to login they have to enter the password with the quote included.

    What gives?
