      Description

      Attempt to configure proxy.config.admin.user_id with username of length longer than 8 characters causes TS to fail at startup. TS fails attempting to change uid using the first 8 characters of the username.

      E.g. (from records.config):
      CONFIG proxy.config.admin.user_id STRING bandersnatch

      TS fails with message:
      FATAL: Can't find entry in password file for user: bandersn
