--- Comment #2 from Xin LI <delphij at FreeBSD.org> ---
IMHO it's a bug with your application as it blindly assumes that crypt(3)
returns a constant length string and copies it to a buffer with that.

However, on the other hand this can be seen as a slight ABI breakage, which
should not happen in -STABLE branches.  I think the attached patch should be
applied against stable/9.

We do want to change the default algorithm, for -HEAD, though.  It looks like
the manual page should be updated by the way.

Assigning to des@ for his decision.
