Resending a lost bug report:

Subject: pserver login fails on 9 char passwords

This problem was found when using cvs-1.11.11 server on HP-UX and wincvs client.
If user password is 9 chars long, the crypted password from client is 13 
characters but password got from HP-UX secure password system is 24 characters. 
The server.c module can not handle that.

Login fails and wincvs client says:

cvs -d :pserver:u123456@our-host.fi:/cvs/fdits login Logging in to :pserver:u123456@our-host.fi:2401:/cvs/fdits
cvs [login aborted]: authorization failed: server our-host.fi rejected access 
to /cvs/fdits for user u123456

Server (HP-UX B.11.11 U 9000/800) syslog.log message:

Jan 13 09:54:54 our-host syslog: login failure (for /cvs/fdits) Jan 13 09:56:16 
our-host syslog: password mismatch for u543251: F0sPYT3vo0Gmc vs. 

I have used pre-compiled versions like cvs-1.11.8 and also compiled my own 
cvs-1.11.11 using these options:

CFLAGS="-g +DAportable -DLOG_AUTHPRIV" ./configure \
                --without-gssapi --enable-server-flow-control

(In this system HAVE_GETSPNAM is defined.)

Have you tried using the PAM in the 1.12 versions?
