Re: user limitations

Depends on many factors, including version and meaning.
When reading input there shouldn't be any limitation;
however, (talking about HEAD code) DNs are limited to
8192 bytes (hardcoded). Passwords are usually limited
by the underlying encoding mechanism; UNIX crypt
considers 8 chars (the rest is silently ignored); other
encryptions use longer strings. If by username you mean
the "uid" value used for UNIX auth, then on older systems
it is limited to 8 chars; user names in LDAP sense, e.g.
DNs, are limited to 8192 chars.
