VS: VS: pserver login fails on 9 char passwords

I think I'll continue with my own patch for a while and consider PAM when we 
have other reasons to change to a newer version on cvs.

Of course, we have plans to abandon pserver use from wincvs and go ssh, some 
day.

Thanks for your time and advice :)

If you must use :pserver:, then I suspect you are probably going to be stuck 
using --enable-pam for your HPUX system and hope that it fixes things. This 
will provide you with a check_system_password() function that calls 
pam_authenticate and we can hope that HPUX knows how to do the right thing for 
you.

I just don't have any other good ideas for how to pursue this. Your patch is 
just not secure enough for general deployment. If you know of any other 
function on HPUX to verify a password against a system stored credential, let 
us know.

        Thanks
