Question SecureCRT SSH login mystery

Using SecureCRT Version 7.2.0 (build 415) on OS X Mavericks and having some challenges with SSH into a Cisco switch.

* First problem is SecureCRT seems to be sending an extra carriage return with the username. The line feeds look fine when I'm logged in but after the username prompt I'm getting either "Password authentication failed" followed by a Password prompt or I get a password change prompt which is what happens if I were to hit at the password prompt.

Either way it looks like something extra got sent with the username. I'm entering the username manually and have the same issue whether I check "Display prompts in terminal window" (which I prefer) or uncheck it.

* Second problem is that for one username SecureCRT seems to have memorized the password. If I enter username Aadmin I go straight in with no password prompt. If I enter username Badmin I get a password change prompt.

* Related question: Is there a way for me to tell SecureCRT to NEVER NEVER EVER remember the user or password?


Note: I just tried another switch and noticed that the login was fine with local login but broke when I changed authentication to TACACS (ACS).
