    If this was discovered in OSX 10.0 does this even effect the current 10.3.2?
    Because I doubt many still use OSX 10.0 or the public beta since they are pretty buggy to begin with.

    I'm personally wondering if anyone is actually going to try this out.

    Anyone?

    Well it says there that it stuffs up when you make a really long password.

    So I made a password 8,883 characters long.

    And it does cause weird things to happen, it says it cannot change the password, but the old password doesn't work either.

    I tried it on my own account, fast user switching doesn't work anymore, I cant authenticate no password related things to do with my account will work.
    But it doesn't affect any of the other users, I still can SSH my self in as a different user.

    Now I hope I can change my password back via root.

    [Edit: I can change the password back to normal, and everything works again, apart from Fast User Switching thinks I'm 'Unknown']
