It is annoying yeah, I ended up having to do the recovery 6 times since I
first assumed I was doing something wrong... A fix would be appreciated, no
point in limiting passwords to 16 characters!

The password recovery of bugzilla seems to be
bugged... If I set a
to something which has a decent length, aka 20+
chars, and then try to
login, I get an error saying it's incorrect. I don't have this issue with
shorter passwords, so I'm guessing that at one place the password is
truncated without giving any notification of
this. Can someone replicate
this issue, or does bugzilla just not like me :) ?
This reminds me the issue I had (and still have) with redhat bugzilla.
At some point of time I got error "Password is too long", but I could
login if I typed the first 16 (IRCC) characters of my password.
Nowadays it just says failed login if I try the full password. I guess
early versions of bugzilla simply truncated the password to 16 chars
or so, and the handling of logging in has changed in the new versions.
This is of course very annoying to users who might not even know what
is going on.
