Description of problem:
When a password with the B# sign is used it does not recognise it.
When i try to login the swat with the root password having a B# sign in it, it
does not recognise the password.
Same if ftping or telneting to the linux box or out to another box.
Its like it is send a different symbol instead of the B# sign.
If i type a B# sign in the the terminal window I see a B# sign, it seems to be
only in the password where the problem is
I have the Keyboard set to a UK keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use The B# sign in a password
Actual Results: access denied
Expected Results: access granted
Can you explain which key you are pressing to give you a "B#" sign? I suspect
that bugzilla is converting the sign so it isn't appearing correctly in this
test: UK keyboard shift+3 (pound)='Â£', euro='â¬', shift top left key ='Â¬'
User reports in private email that this is in fact the UK pound sign
(shift+3). I can't duplicate this issue on 7.2 or 9
This works fine for me on the current Fedora Core. I think this was most
probably some mismatch of character encoding used by passwd and other services
