What does your pam_unix2.conf says in the password line?  I have md5
instead of blowfish on both files and they don't get truncated...

Following is in /etc/security/pam_pwcheck.conf
password:       blowfish nullok
Manual says it will truncate at 97 or so chars.

72 I just reread

So why does passwd truncate at 8?????


And in pam_unix2.conf there is:
password:       blowfish nullok

So this could be a blowfish only thing?

Are you running 9.0 or 9.1????
