Well the problem is simple. When your user has more
than 8 characters the system only recognizes 8.
Example:

If a password is 12345678helloworld and you write
12345678blablablablanls the systems accept this pass
and you can enter without problems.

    This is a side effect of the standard Unix password encryption
    format that Webmin uses. Only the first 8 characters are
    encrypted, and so any after that are not used when doing a
    password comparison..
