UserPassword attribute problem using Crypt


One friend told me that he have a problem with his directory service
using OpenLDAP 2.3.x.
The problem is that UserPassword attribute only takes the first eight
characters and the next characters until the password chain is not
For example:

The clear password is p2gh467d2k31 (and the crypt, is other character
chain.)and when he entered the clear password for some service, he can
access only entering p2gh467d , so the other characters (2k31) is not
taken. So he can use passwords like this:

p2gh467d + 565rfgrgrt
p2gh467d + hj544fsdfg

Why this?

PD: Sorry for my english.
