Dial-Up Connection - Save Password Error Win2K

I have a dial-up internet connection from my home PC (Win2K SP2).

Whenever I check the "Save Password" checkbox, it appears to save a massive (about 20 characters) string. My password is only 6 characters.

Has anyone heard of this before?

Yes it is a security measure with W2K.
It still saves it and works doesn't it?
