At Sun, I worked on an implementation of RFC 2759, and verified the
resulting compatibility with Microsoft RAS.  The erratum is correct.
The password is indeed hashed using UTF-16-LE encoding.  (I suspect, but
cannot prove, that it was originally defined on NT using UCS-2-LE rather
than UTF-16-LE.  But the distinction almost certainly doesn't matter.)
