I would add a "if (option_debug > 2)" in front of that new DEBUG message, in order to only output it with a high level of debugging.

Does this patch apply to the current CVS version of the application?

There is a slight typo in the application description:
Authenticate(password[|options][|maxdigits])      should be ...

There are also some indentation issues.  Tabs should always be used for indentation instead of spaces.

I also think that this application needs to be updated to use the application argument parsing API instead of adding more manual args parsing code.  See the other applications for examples on how AST_DECLARE_APP_ARGS and AST_STANDARD_APP_ARGS are used.

Diff against svn trunk. Added AST_DECLARE_APP_ARGS and AST_STANDARD_APP_ARGS
It is compiling without any warnings, but I can't test it now.

drumkilla: Can You please point me where formatting issues? I'm using mc's internal editor, and it uses only tabs (option convert tabs to spaces is off).
May be I missed tabs somewhere, but I can't find where it is.
Thank You.
