Could be. I was considering to add "[:pass]" to a different msgid that 
would then match exactly, but I was pointed at

3.2.1.  User Information

"Use of the format "user:password" in the userinfo field is deprecated. 
  Applications should not render as clear text any data after the first 
colon (":") character found within a userinfo subcomponent unless the 
data after the colon is the empty string (indicating no password). 
Applications may choose to ignore or reject such data when it is 
received as part of a reference and should reject the storage of such 
data in unencrypted form."
