Which becomes the problem with that method, although it is a particularly effective one (long strings with uncommon characters would take months, if not years, for a table generator to come up with everything, not to mention the sheer size of such a table.).

However, a possible solution to this would be a new server message, APMSG_RESET_PASSWORD that could be issued if/when a server name changes. That message could also be used if/when a user loses his/her password, they can go through an 'I forgot my password' dialog of sorts that would allow them to recover it.
