Aww man, I've been using "somesuch" as the password for all my accounts and
now you've ruined it! Luckily I use your dog's name for my bank passwords
which is probably still safe.
To address the OP, I would agree with skipping trim on both the user name
and password. If it's a copy-paste error, they will try again. If you want
to get fancy, warn when the password starts with or ends with spaces if it
comes back incorrect, but I think that's probably going to be so rare as not
to be worth the extra effort.
