Do not write truncated LDAP passwords

I have had another look at this bug. The issue happens because
quoted printable encoding is used on obfuscated password. I have
changed it to use base64 and it works fine for my previously
problematic pasword.

The fix should support existing obfuscated passwords in
addrbook--index.xml file. Whenever a new LDAP password is set it will
be encoded using base64.

Old style passwords are marked with !|, new style uses !!. I
have not tested what happens when one has ! as a first character
in their LDAP password.
