The password has been truncated to 8 characters, and I'm guessing this
happens before it gets to neon. Google tells me that the Solaris
getpass() implementation, which is used by APR, will do this.

Can you try commenting out the

#define HAVE_GETPASS 1

line in apr/include/arch/unix/apr_private.h, or adding an


in an appropriate place in passwd/apr_getpass.c so that the replacement
getpass() implementation is used in APR?
