Binary package hint: synaptic
I'm not very familiar with the long term proxy strategy in ubuntu, so it is kind of obvious for me that an "@" sign in the password will not work for the variable:
maybe you need quotes in order to parse that
It is not clear to me though when I type the password into a password field as I had to do it for the synaptic proxy settings.
I was using such a password ever since. No problem for firefox or other browsers.
In this case synaptic reveals even parts of my password in the error message.
I changed my password, but I guess this needs to be changed. Just wanted to let you know. Hope it helps.
