[ejabberd] Security issue in debug log

Hi there,

while configuring an ejabberd installation at my server I just developed as in my opinion is considered a security issue.
The debug log contains passwords of users that are connection to the server. I checked if they are at least transmitted encrypted - yes they are.
But especially in large installations and an authentication via LDAP it is a security concern to get plain text passwords just by running a server with a debug log.

Is this by purpose?

Thanks for any responses.
