When a user signs up for an account on a wordpress blog, if their chosen username is longer than the limit, wordpress chops of the end of the username, without warning the user, and without offering the user the opportunity to choose again.
Steps to reproduce: Go to a wordpress blog, sign up with a long username, and read the confirmation email. An example: forum.xbmc.org, which has a limit of 15 characters.
