"No salt" means "normal" in this case. Yes, that doesn't make any sense;
I only report the news, not make it.
>2. Is there any way to change the enctype of the master database key?
"no" (unless you're willing to write a fair amount of database-fiddling
code, and probably lose your password history in the process).
