ASA5505 passwd configuration problems

I am attempting to change the passwd on an ASA5505 running 7.2.2(22), and cannot. Entering the passwd ? command shows that I can use an alpha numeric password "up to" 16 bytes in length, but when I enter a password that is less that this, I get an error stating that the password must be "exactly" 16 bytes. See below. Any thoughts?

fw1-pao(config)# passwd ?

configure mode commands/options:

WORD A password of up to 16 alphanumeric characters

fw1-pao(config)# passwo

fw1-pao(config)# passw

fw1-pao(config)# passwd whyn0wrk encry

invalid telnet password 'whyn0wrk': must be exactly 16 bytes long

Usage: [no] password|passwd <password> encrypted

clear configure passwd

I have the following aaa commands in place:

aaa authentication ssh console TACACS+ LOCAL

aaa authentication serial console TACACS+ LOCAL

aaa authentication enable console TACACS+ LOCAL

Thoughts?

Thanks,

-Scott
