Using the nightly build Cyberduck-6053.tar this error still occurs and it's reproducible:

  1. Create a new connection for a server which requires a username in e-mail format (e.g. AND any password.
  2. Try to open the connection after you have successfully entered all connection details

Result: Connection fails

Issue: Cyberduck does NOT prompt for a password if the username contains an "@" which leads to the connection error described earlier in several tickets!

This issue will not occur, if the account on serverside does not require a password to connect.

Reallife occurence: E.g. Photobox upload service (requiring to login for FTP upload with your registered e-mail address)
