Actually, this came up recently. HPUX has a busted getpass function
that truncates at 8 chacters. APR needs to be told not to use that...

See http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=40256

So you can either use shorter passwords, or hack APR such that it
doesn't use the system's getpass function :(
