Why did my FTP password stop working on my Windows 2000 system after I installed the Win2K Security Rollup Package 1 (SRP1)?

A. After you install the Win2K SRP1, Win2K considers leading white-space characters (i.e., spaces) in the FTP password to be valid characters and no longer removes them. As a result, if a stored password contains spaces, you must include the spaces when you enter the password. Likewise, if the password doesn't contain spaces, you must ensure that the password you type has no leading spaces.
