Hi. When can this be solved?

I cannot wait for the new version because I need to send emails, so a
quick hack:

     * Initialize the callback contexts

    user = "address@hidden";
    if (user == NULL)
        user = getusername();

Solves the problem instantly.

Know this is ugly but at least provided you with the information that
nothing else is wrong, only here, to get the correct username.

I also resetted my password:)
