Perhaps they should enable more/all password components to handle much

heh... I suck. Scratch that msg (where's my coffee?). My gaming laptop
is even configured to log in automatically with AutoLogon=1 and a
password that is longer than 14.

Perhaps a faint memory of pain from the old Winders days wallowed up
inside me. Oh well, I'll shut up now...
