It only does that if you have choose to use cleartext authentication, you 
could tell the client to use digest authentication (SHA1 based), as it's in the
default install.  The new 1.2 server now has zero knowledge authentication as
well.  This is an authentication scheme where the server doesn't even know your
password.
