Bug#94876: boot-floppies: password entry (for root) ignore trailing spaces

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 20010309
Severity: normal

  at some point during the installation from floppies (I guess it's the same
  when using cd or other methods) the user is asked for root password,
  the password is accepted and later on a user can log in using this
  password (root account). However, if the password contains space
  at the end this space is ignored. For example if the password entered
  is 'secret ' the password that user could actually use to log in is
  'secret' (no space at the end).

  IIRC the same goes for the first suer that is created during installation
