 (In [8674]) Add support for whitespaces in usernames/passwords provided
 with AUTHINFO USER/PASS.  nnrpd was previously considering
 as invalid passwords like "a b" (two arguments "a" and "b"
 when only one was expected) or parsing " ab" as "ab"
 (stripping the leading space).

 nnrpd now treats everything after the first whitespace
 character following AUTHINFO USER/PASS, up to, but not
 including, the CRLF, as the username/password.

 Thanks to Jeffrey M. Vinocur for the initial patch.
