Help! Spurious password protection...

It was my own fault - I had a custom property called 'password' (not  
for locking the stack) - completely forgetting that it's a reserved  
word...doh!

Fortunately, the stack was at an early stage, so not much lost.

5523 is still off limits for me...

Thanks,

Mark
