 The issue in #4066 was a bug in how we were trying to fix handling of long
 passwords (so the fix was removed).

 The password is actually truncated before it gets to the server anyway, so
 using such a long password is pointless.  You'll see that if you enter the
 just the first 16 characters of your password, it'll work fine.

 This is the same issue as #1233, #3320, #3460, but since those are closed,
 I'll keep this open.

 nosnilmot: Was the fix in #3320 problematic (I seem to remember the issue
 being that we were truncating the hashed password or something)?
