My password used was 12 numbers, I even tried with alphanumeric with caps, in 8.2 it wouldn't accept at all and I'm not the first person to have this issue, people have had this problem as far back as 6 iirc. Nobody knows why exactly.

Well, geli seems to work here, but I did just find a fix a bug relating 
to passwords when there was a "=" in it that screwed up the parsing. 
That fix will be in beta2.
