I chose something very specific for my username and then during the log in process it says "owner".

In the system account settings it asks for the password for the specific name I chose and the amount of letters in the password is different where it asks for my authentication code.

I do believe the number of stars might be different on purpose, for security, so people can not know the length of your password. –  Mateo Apr 3 '13 at 16:31
The point is: Does it work? If it doesn't work then it's time to consider a problem.. –  Seth Apr 3 '13 at 18:24
