Prior to this change authenticate returned None when no password was specified.
Note that this affect version 1.6-beta-1 and master but I'm not sure this should be considered a release blocker.
I'm reporting because one of my testcases failed and I thought this change might have other side effects. We should at least raise a ValueError with a description instead of a non-intuitive assertion error.
I'll write tests and a fix if this gets accepted in order to backport it.
