Description Dax Kelson 2006-03-06 17:25:18 EST
Description of problem:

The username "beagleindex" is 11 characters in length and violates a long
standing convention of 8 character maximum username lengths.

This has a real world impact in the output of the "ls" and "ps" commands.
Besides the visual glitches and mis-alignments from those commands, they are
often used as input to shell scripts which might mis-execute when their input

Hmmm, it seems tricky to change it now though. The current name is already in
peoples /etc/passwd.
