VS: pserver login fails on 9 char passwords

It was not any comma problem. I did also some log writing (a few lines later):
...
        else
        {
            host_user = NULL;
#ifdef LOG_AUTHPRIV
            syslog (LOG_AUTHPRIV | LOG_NOTICE,
                    "password mismatch for %s: %s vs. %s", username,
                    crypt(password, found_passwd), found_passwd);
#endif
...
$ tail /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
Jan  7 11:14:22 host1 syslog: password mismatch for user1: F0sPYT3vo0Gmc vs. 
F0sPYT3vo0GmcT.Z51tttO6Q

Actually, as near as I can tell, the CVS server has been dealing with that 
problem, inserting the NUL at the comma, since 1.11.7.  Why is Mäkeläinen still 
experiencing a problem?

Not that that is really the correct fix - to quote the comment in server.c:

    /* Allow for dain bramaged HPUX passwd aging
     *  - Basically, HPUX adds a comma and some data
     *    about whether the passwd has expired or not
     *    on the end of the passwd field.
     *  - This code replaces the ',' with '\0'.
     *
     * FIXME - our workaround is brain damaged too.  I'm
     * guessing that HPUX WANTED other systems to think the
     * password was wrong so logins would fail if the
     * system didn't handle expired passwds and the passwd
     * might be expired.  I think the way to go here
     * is with PAM.

Patches pensively perused,
