 Priority:  normal             |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  General            |    Version:
 Severity:  normal             |   Keywords:
 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.
