GoDaddy and 'cannot log into the MySQL server'

GoDaddy and MySQL access - Helmut Granda: "This is the first hit for “GoDaddy cannot log in to the MySQL server” in Google, so here’s the answer:

GoDaddy is using old password hashing, so passwords longer than 14 characters are truncated to the first 14 characters. Use the first 14 characters of the password you entered and it will log in successfully."

I had this problem, using a 20 char. password. I just used the first 14 chars and it worked. So much for 'strong passwords'.
