Subject: John-the-ripper run on Trusted HP-UX

I am running John-the-ripper version 1.7 on a trusted HP-UX box running
The trusted version of HP-UX allows passwords lengths greater than 8

Everything works fine with john-the-ripper on the machine except when
set their passwords to greater than 8 characters. 

For these accounts, john always marks them as cracked with output like
the following:

guesses: 4  time: 0:00:52:13  c/s: 152516  trying: vx25 - vxs7
Loaded 22 password hashes with 22 different salts (Traditional DES
[32/32x8V BS])
03/31/06 11:31:15 $                (h0058:2)
03/31/06 11:31:15 7                (h0094:2)
03/31/06 11:32:30 11a            (h0018:2)
03/31/06 11:35:16 3f               (h0015:2)

Is there any way to configure john-the-ripper to support passwds greater
8 characters on trusted HP-UX systems?

Thanks for any help
