Perch allows password chars that break login

A couple of times, my password manager has generated a password that Perch has allowed, but then breaks login. When this happens, if email isn't setup yet or isn't working, the only way I can login is by changing the password manually in the DB.

This just happened with the password "x2^;C'^%ArG:". I'm guessing it's that semi-colon.

Maybe Perch could produce an error and not allow a password that contains login-breaking characters?

How does it break?

Sorry, I guess I could have been more descriptive than "it breaks." It just gives an 'incorrect user/pass' error.
