Where does the space character after '.com' comes from? Seems there's
something wrong with Base64-decoding / handing decoded values over to
vchkpw. I might be wrong, but all logs similar to this found in my
system logs have '<username>:<IP>' instead of '<username> :<IP>'.
I'd say this is a case for strace/truss, to see if qmail already write
the blank into fd #3 or if vchpw insertes it, and in the former case
it's a file for 'dbg' or similar (and a '-g2' compiled qmail), to
figure who inserts it. In the latter case one has to 'dbg' vchpw to
see when this blank appears first.
