The mysql passwords in older versions were stored in cleartext. This had been changed to hashed passwords since 3.0.4.x versions of ispconfig if I reember correctly. Some mysql user editing commands required a cleartext password, so we had to keep the password in clertext. In 3.0.4 we found a way to work around the mysql commands and were able to switch to encoded passwords for new and updated mysql users.
