Doc Text:
Cause: Long authentication messages stretch the login window to an unreasonable width. Consequence: The login window gets unreasonably wide if authentication messages are too long. Fix: Force authentication messages to wrap if they get too long. Result: Long authentication messages no longer stretch the login window to an unreasonable size.
