Length of passwords for svnserve on HP-UX?

Hi,

is there a maximum length of passwords (probably 8 chars) for svnserve
on HP-UX?

The question arises from the following (in my opinion very strange)
scenario:

SVN server (svnserve 1.3.1 r19032) on HP-UX machine.

a) SVN client on windows2000 (tortoise 1.3.5 r5377)
b) SVN client on debian (command line 1.2.3 r15833)
c) SVN client on HP-UX (command line 1.3.1 r19032)

I know the setup is very heterogenous, but ....

With an user that uses a password with more than 8 chars the access
works with a and b but doesn't work from c. The access fails with NO
ERROR message and just asks for another username.

After changing the PW to less than 8 chars access worked from all
clients.
