It's normally not an issue since no-one has them in real passwords. I think Frank asked for this in one of his Johnny reviews? Frank, have you ever encountered non-printable ASCII in passwords, maybe just in contests? What we can do is manually substitute the ASCII non-printable and control chars with their escaped hex or octal variant. I don't think there's a smarter way of handling this. Shinnok
