Trailing spaces in wireless keys.
As some of you may know, when text has been copied sometimes the highlight selection extends beyond the last character and picks up a trailing space and when pasted the space will be pasted too. In this day and age of wireless encryption with many users using a random array of up to 64 characters, I can see how it could be an issue. After a random key has been entered into a modem or router's config, most users will copy the key and paste it into the key text field in windows when prompted upon attempting to connect to a network. Now, depending on the source of the copy, a trailing space may or may not be included in the copy. Textpad seems to not include a space, but when I copied from a hotmail email, it most certainly did.
This has surely confused alot of people who are wondering how they have possibly entered the wrong password.
Shouldn't trailing spaces be ignored, based on the fact that most users do not make passwords with a space at the end?
