If the webmin's user password contains more than
8 characters, then the user is allowed to login by
just typing in the first 8 characters of the
password. All the other characters are ignored.
Example: Password "abcd1234xyz" for user "test".
Typing in only abcde1234 for user test will allow
the user to login to webmin.
This happens if the authentication password is set
in the webmin user configuration. If it is UNIX
authentication then it is not a problem.
