Of course we can fast track it. You've taken the hard route to solving
it though.

in (hand crafted :}):

static void
save_dialog (HWND h)
  *user = eget (h, IDC_NET_USER, *user);
  *passwd = eget (h, IDC_NET_PASSWD, *passwd);
+  if (! *passwd) {
+    *passwd = new char[1];
+    char[0] = '\0';
+  }

Should do it.
