Cron jobs and rsync tasks shouldn't be creatable for users with long usernames
|Reported by:||gcooper||Owned by:||william|
Due to a limitation in FreeBSD, usernames that exceed 17 characters aren't usable for cronjobs [see the EINVAL error under setlogin(2) for more details]. For now we need to limit the administrator from creating cronjobs and rsync jobs with usernames that exceed this limit. We should also document this limitation in the user guide and up on the wiki.
