[JDEV] Passwords

I am not familiar with the "internals" of the server, but I know that most
clients now send an original iq-get on the jabber:iq:auth namespace with the
proper username. The purpose is for the client to figure out what types of
authentication are available for this user. This may be the "twice through"
stuff you are seeing.
