Thanks for testing this!

I'm not sure if I'm happy with the outcome... Seems as if the result
of both md5() functions depends on something outside of PHP and
postgresql... Which could mean that if I backup my db and restore it
on another server (which of course should be possible) all my
passwords will be broken :-(

I guess I'll have to take a better look at how md5 works...

Thanks again!
