The problem is actually that the longest username used so far screws
up any shorter usernames.  It is a bug in vchkpw not clearing a buffer.
Tbere is no problem if you call vchkpw from separate processes (because
each invocation leaves a clear buffer area on most OSs) but there is
a problem if you call it from sutdaemond.

The fix is either don't use authdaemond or get the latest beta
