When logging in to the server using mysql CLI, and -p option is specified without following option, we cannot input more than 80 characters. The limitation is due to the following code found in client/get_password.c:

char *get_tty_password(const char *opt_message)
  char to[80];

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Increase the length of the character.
