unable to authenticate using encoded credentials

Hi,

I'm using Jira 5.2.7, Mac OS 10.8

This works: curl -D- -u 'login:password' -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json"

This does not -- get Unahtorized 401

auth=`echo 'login:password' | openssl base64`

curl -D- -X GET -H "Authorization: Basic $auth" -H "Content-Type: application/json"

Have done this incorrectly?

Thank You -- Paul

Not sure root cause... on Mac OS 10.8 when running echo 'login:user' | openssl base64

returns with '==' appended to the end of the string. removed '==' and authorization works as expected.
