My friend Andrew had contributed some code that enables the use of bcrypt for hashing passwords; which is more secure than SHA-256 for this purpose; especially if your password wasn't salted!
Unlike last time when I hacked in salting, your password should be automatically upgraded on signon, so don't worry about it. If the site was being erratic, it was because I was chasing bugs that were only getting exposed in prod
