Thanks for the Patch. I've forwarded to my customer so he can test it.

It's a shame we can't overload some of the core classes like the User 
class in a custom module but I can see why this would be potentially not 
a good idea ;-)

Hah - good point. It's a really small chunk of code so I can't imagine 
it would be a huge job to include it in the main vtiger product, but I 
guess if they haven't had many requests then why bother?

It would be interesting to see if this is a seriously needed feature or not.
