git commit: 775a37377feadedd46221a615586fd9145f148e1

Updated the API to use the localized error text that a user gets if they attempted a failed login scenario from the UI.  

The new output to a failed attempt to login via API looks like:

xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 2950: 'redstone.xmlrpc.XmlRpcFault: Either the password or username is incorrect.'>

xmlrpclib.Fault: <Fault 2950: 'redstone.xmlrpc.XmlRpcFault: Your account has been deactivated.'>
