OS/Version: openSUSE 11.2

When setting a password for the bootloader yast seems to forget to add --md5.
So when it is really needed to enter the password while booting it is _always_

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install password for bootloader grub
2. Reboot
3. Press p to enter the password you set
Actual Results:
Password: ********
Press any key to continue . . .

In file: /boot/grub/menu.lst
password $1$some_nice_string

Expected Results:
Password: ********
[editable grub entries]

In file: /boot/grub/menu.lst
password --md5 $1$some_nice_string

When editing the menu.lst manually and simply adding the missing --md5
everything is working perfect again.

Happens during automated installation via autoyast, when using the DVD to
repair the bootloader and when simply using yast on the running system to
change some setting of the bootloader.

After each change you have to manually update the menu.lst and enter the --md5
in the password line.
