When password which contains'^1' is updated via selang,
it cannot update login information.
So, login failed with new password.
User checked some pattern and he found following password was failed.
Pass^12rd or so.
The cause of the problem is that that function changes certain combinations of characters on encoding and messes up that kind of password since ^1 combination is one of those combinations.
