SCI: LSL5 memory.drv (Password) file issues

I copied the required files from the LSL5 CD to a folder on my hard driver. The file 'memory.drv', which holds the password information, is not included on the CD. I load up the game for the first time in ScummVM, and after the intro I am asked to enter my password. Of course, nothing works, and after five tries, the game quits.
To get around this, I had to run the game in DOSBox. This time, after the intro, I was asked if I wanted to CREATE a password, which is what's supposed to happen. I said 'Why bother?' and quit. The file 'memory.drv' had been created, and when I ran the game again in ScummVM, I was asked if I wanted to create a password this time around, instead of being asked in enter a password that hadn't been created yet.
It seems that ScummVM should optimally be able to handle the absence of 'memory.drv' in the case of first runs.
