We have 2 encryption schemes to store passwords:
1) older scheme called HITEK
2) newer scheme called JAVA (more secure)

The reason for this failure is related to how we encrypt the passwords in order to store it on disc. Basically, any password starting with * will fail for the HITEK encryption scheme.

This will be fixed in version 10.09, to be released ~ next week.
