The only solution i have is to open a WebKit browser and ask user to log in using it. After login is finished Siilihai would copy the cookies stored by browser and use them for further communication with the server. It just *might* work.
Let me know if you have better ideas.
PS: 0.9.2 seems to work pretty well and is available at the PPA. Launchpad has been under huge load due to new Ubuntu release and that has caused delay for the build to appear in PPA.
