On two different SuSE machines (7.2 and 7.3), I am having a problem with
them authenticating only from the first 8 characters of a password.

Example, password is: ilovemyroot

'ilovemyr' and 'ilovemyr00t' will both pass authentication at console,
and in any X applications (i.e. kdesu and kcheckpass)

I have md5 enabled, and have verified the md5 entries in
/etc/pam.d/passwd, /etc/pam.d/login, and /etc/pam.d/sshd

Any thoughts? Anyone else with the same issues? I don't know much about
pam and how it works.
