It's possible to create a user with a password that will not work on login

When i'm assigning the password OTmoP3ku8BZVWp to a user, worpress says it's very strong and it doesn't reject it in any way. When this user later tries to log in into the wp-admin, the user login data is not accepted. When i'm shortening the password, it works as expected.

Could not reproduce with your password example neither in 3.5.1 nor in 3.6-beta1.

Have you tested on a clean install (with Twenty Twelve or Twenty Eleven theme activated and all plugins disabled)?

You're right. I've tested the behaviour mentioned above with several of our corporate WP installations. The Bug occurs in all of them - except of one that is not using all plugins the others have in common. I wasn't expecting that a plugin is allowed to change WPs login behaviour.

Well, when i have some free time, i'll figure out which plugin causes the problem and inform the responsible developer.

Thank you!
