No, it's definitely up. In any case, once I enter the correct password 
the front end kicks in.

I'm confident the password in those files I am aware of is correct.

In any case, it would mean the initially displayed password should 
reflect the incorrect spelling, which is not the case. The password that 
is displayed when the frontend first starts up is substantially 
different to the required one.

NB: there is only one backend on the network.

<grin> The frontend is on my office desktop computer, so this hasn't 
been a big deal to retype the password every startup. It's just that, 
well, it's a challenge, right? ;)

But I figure the incorrect password being put up has to be on the PC 
somewhere so we're grepping madly at the moment...
