No, but the code is:

(defun nnimap-login (user password)
  (cond
   ;; Prefer plain LOGIN if it's enabled (since it requires fewer
   ;; round trips than CRAM-MD5, and it's less likely to be buggy),
   ;; and we're using an encrypted connection.
   ((and (not (nnimap-capability "LOGINDISABLED"))

[...]

    (nnimap-command "LOGIN %S %S" user password))

[...]

   ((and (not (nnimap-capability "LOGINDISABLED"))

[...]

    (nnimap-command "LOGIN %S %S" user password))
   ((and (nnimap-capability "AUTH=PLAIN")

[...]

    (nnimap-command
     "AUTHENTICATE PLAIN %s"
     (base64-encode-string
      (format "\000%s\000%s"
              (nnimap-quote-specials user)
              (nnimap-quote-specials password)))))))

so if you're using any of the plain LOGIN things to the IMAP server,
there's really no code in there that I can see that can truncate
anything...
