Bytes definitely.  We hashed that out a while ago.

My point is that CRAM_MD5 login calls authenticate, and its authenticator returns a string, just like your example does.  So it ought to be going through the same code path.  I haven't followed the logic in detail, though, so there must be some difference...I'm pretty sure the MD5 login has a test now (but not 100% sure...)
