Can't autogenerate passwords with code on Wiki

I’m trying to use the code on the Wiki to autogenerate passwords for new
users:

http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?AutogeneratedPassword

Problem is that the code never puts any text in the template; I suspect
that the problem is:

$Transaction->CreatorObj->__Value(‘Password’)

Instead of returning NO-PASSWORD as expected, it’s returning a weird has
of characters. As an example, I created a new e-mail account for testing
and $Transaction->CreatorObj->__Value(‘Password’) returned
"NHIlHxP80A9j+A1HDtBU7Q".

Consequently, I can’t distinguish between users who already have an RT
password, and users who don’t. Any suggestions?
