I signed up for .mac and am able to Backup, have an email account, iDisk etc., but when I go to System Preferences /Internet and click the .Mac tab my member name is correct but the password is not. My password has 8 digits and the one in the window has 10. How do I change the password? When I click on the iDisk tab it tells me to enter my info on the .Mac tab (catch 22). I can circumvent this by going to Apple/.Mac and entering my password there. Any ideas?

.Mac appears to be down again - it's had some problems this weekend. Sorry dude, just bad timing, but at least its not you. ;)

it appears as tho the pane adds a few of those characters in a further effort to hide the password... i've seen the same thing with a shorter password, but the password itself isn't affected.

This is correct. The amount of dots in the entry window has no correlation to the number of characters in your password.

it ads a few for your protection, someone could see how many and guess it
