Description Karl Latiss 2007-04-13 01:42:22 EDT
Description of problem:
The maximum length of the username is 32 characters which is too short for some
usernames. It becomes easily apparent when using email addresses as usernames.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
vsftpd-2.0.1-5.EL4.5.i386.rpm

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in with username > 32 characters
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Login Failed

Expected results:
Successful login

Additional info:
This was previously patched for RHEL (see bug #139803) and I would have expected
it to carry through to current releases.

I have attached a patch to increase the username length to 128 characters (as
per the RHEL 3 patch)
