Missing sign-off (see  for what this means).
However, I don't think this change is correct. secure_value() places
the encoded strings into the authstr, which is what validate_value() is
reading, so field and value are already URL encoded here.
This is why field is url_decode()'d later in this function before
comparing with the expected value.
