perhaps the idea is too simple: But as you suggested the password could be
stored encrypted in an external file (or even in a variable). One problem,
as you stated, is that the variable expansion is logged. So wouldn't it be a
solution if qftest would allow a variable syntax which explicitly prohibits
logging of the result of a variable expansion? No matter what the actually
setting is telling?

Of course you would also need an equivalent solution in the server script.
rc.setLocal(..., noLogFlag) is the first which comes into my mind.

Kind Regards,
