Hi Matt,

Its most likely the latter of your two ideas. The client only attempts 
user authentication once and then reports an error to the user. Further 
action is required by the user for subsequent authentication attempts to 
occur. The password field should probably be cleared to prevent this 
from happening in the future. I can work this into the next release if 
you believe it may help your situation.
