Cannot use backup verification codes from Google (2 factor authentication)

We're using Google two factor authentication with Password Vault Manager. If a user doesn't have their phone with them, we would like them tostill be able log in to PVM. Google provides backup verification codes for just this reason. I tried using my backup verification codes, but PVM does not accept them. Should this work? If not, I would like to see this added in a future release soon.

Hello Kirk,
I was not aware of the backup code for Google Authenticator. Do you know if it's only for the Google account or if it works with any web site like DropBox?
