Agreed.  You are by no means 50% 'in' by knowing the username.  You are
unable to confirm the accuracy of the username without also having a
correct password.

FYI: Incase anyone wanted to make their m0n0wall experience complete,
Manuel has a password generator for windows based upon mouse movements.
It's on his other site at http://neon1.net.  It's called mkpasswd and
I've been using it for awhile.  Strong, and has the 'novelty' quality
about it.
