Package: imp4
Version: 4.1.3-2
Severity: important

If you try to use PGP in imp4, you are prompted for your passphrase on 
first use. I have a 17-character passphrase, but this is rejected as 
invalid. It would appear that the length is more than imp4 can cope with 
at present, or alternatively, it is rejecting certain characters present 
in my passphrase.
