Submit #2295: error code of crypt-blowfish

Author: Loganaden Velvindron
Status: New
Priority: Low
Target version: 

According to http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2011/11/15/3,
On encountering an error, it should return something else than ':'.

Upon discussion with sjg@, we decided to change to NULL. According to 
the man page(crypt(3)), upon an error, NULL should be returned.

I tested by changing hash from sha to blf and generating new passwords.
