Yeah, I tried \# before, but it seemed that the effective password was
ALC\ not ALC\#FGU
maybe for it, #FGU is just the comment, so it bypassed them
I didn't try $ that would have some side effects as you specified I
guess

Generally you proceed special characters with a \
/:CRAFT:ALC\#FGU


Depeding on the input method, you might also put the \ when enter the
password as well. 


Had a similar issue when a user used a $ in their password, but in the
shell script it is a variable prefix. 


So, I would try that as a test, but others might provide more info.
