<tip type="php / db and crypt()" author="paul bennett">
If you are storing ewncrypted passwords using crypt() (or the 
equivalent), ensure that the password field is long enough to store the 
encrypted data. Otherwise you may truncate the encrypted data and make 
comparisons of no effect, thus locking valid users out of your aplication.
