Re: root password bug?

well as much as i know like the standard unix passwd, the length would be
set to 8 characters and anything beyond that is not taken care of anyway so
openldap, openldap1.openldap121 etc. would all work.
i havent seen the code but try with passwd length <8 characters and see
whether its a problem still.
