Nope. There is no debug statement showing the actual input to the
helper. The username and password is separated by a space when sent to
the helper.

The easiest way to diagnose is to add debug output to your helper.
Anything written to stderr will be seen in cache.log (again, remember
buffering or else the output might not appear when you intended), or
your helper could open /dev/console for writing, and write the debug
output there.
