kcheckpass uses the function getpass() to read the password. getpass()
on solaris will only read the first 8 characters of a password. The
function which should be used is getpassphrase() which will read password
phrases up to 256 characters. I have been trying to compile kde with
little success. If one of the kde-solaris packagers can build a
kcheckpass using getpassphrase() I'll be happy to test the binary.
