I guess my only other concern is what is the 'correct' max length that ought to
be supported?

We came upon this issue because we authenticate against an ldap server for
subversion.  I'm guessing that a password to do this kind of bind/authentication
could easily be up to 128 characters (perhaps more), and if the password prompt
doesn't permit this, authentication fails.

A quick look at Solaris 10 shows a MAX_PASS of 256 [I suppose this is for
getpassphrase(), which is not available on HP-UX B.11.23 ia64].
