I got a finger print reader on my HP laptop 2 years ago. I'll never own another laptop without one. Swipe and go!

Agreed, I filed bug 4872 back in June because another user ran into this same issue-- I think we should support 20 chars. I'm thinking we'll have support for this in a few months.

Yes, we definitely should have had that error message.
