this happens only after restarting smuxi, so it has to do with the config save files

This is a bug in nini that needs to be dealt with. By default Nini skips all quotes and thus writing a value with quotes will break the ini file format.

Glad I found this bug report - I had been assuming that the reason one of my accounts was failing to login after a restart was because of a password length issue; but it turns out it was due to the double-quote character ". A single-quote character ' works fine.

I'll assume that a similar problem will happen if the user's password starts or ends with a space character ...

It would probably make sense to encode the password before storing it in an ini file format in that case; simple base64 might be a reasonable workaround?
