When creating an entry with a Post Password, the entry
is created and successfully publishes the form

I do not use the title of the blog as part of the URL.
Have tested with multiple length passwords, this occurs
whether the password is 1 char, 4 chars, 8 chars, 10,
16 or any other size. Have tested with alpha passwords,
numeric passwords, alpha+numeric... No special
characters used in the passwords.
Have checked the coookie for the password of the post
exists and it does. It has a expiry time of 30 days
from when its set as per the wp-pass.php script.
Where in the_content() does the password cookie get
checked and is it checking for a clear password or the
hash? Is the password stored in the database in clear
text or as MD5 using the databases password() function?
This is something I truly need to resolve some how. Any
pointers to where in the source to start looking, or
any solutions or attempts at solutions would be greatly
