Cloud: "Failed to authorize: oauth2: server response missing access_token" instead of "username or password is incorrect"

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

If incorrect password is supplied for Cloud rclone reports "Failed to authorize: oauth2: server response missing access_token" instead of "username or password is incorrect". It is confusing.

Run the command 'rclone version' and share the full output of the command.

rclone v1.57.0
- os/version: debian 10.9 (64 bit)
- os/kernel: 4.19.0-16-amd64 (x86_64)
- os/type: linux
- os/arch: amd64
- go/version: go1.17.2
- go/linking: static
- go/tags: none

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive) Cloud

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone lsd -vvv --dump headers,bodies mailru-cloud: --config /etc/rclone.conf --log-file=mailru.log

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

type = mailru
user =
pass = xxx
speedup_enable = false
token = {"access_token":"xxx","token_type":"Bearer","refresh_token":"xxx","expiry":"2022-01-05T05:10:44.446658793+01:00"}

A log from the command with the -vv flag
