    Was this a webmin login as created in the Webmin Users
    module, or an AIX login as created in the Users and Groups
    module?

    It was a AIX user as created in the Users and Groups
    module.
    Impossible to use it with Telnet.
    Impossible to modify it with SMITTY. Smit see the user but
    with a message : user too long !!

    Webmin should not let you create users with usernames that
    are too long then.. Do you know what the maximum allowable
    username
    on AIX is?

    the maximum allowable username on AIX is 8 giving by
    cmd "man mkuser" and verify by SMIT.

    Thanks, I will fix the next release of webmin to prevent
    long usernames
    from being created.

    I presume this applies to groups as well?
