if you add a user with the pc-usermanager only the first 8 characters are
taken in account for validation of the password.

How to repeat:

start pc-usermanager and create a account "test"
Give test the password 123456789123456789

Now you can log in with the user test an the passwort 12345678 or
12345678abc or any string that starts with 12345678.

How to fix:

re-set your password in the console with the password command

Best regards,
