summary: Increase space allocated to auto-login username

Trivial fix: PuTTY truncates the `auto-login username' field to about 32 characters. Some sites have taken to allocating usernames of the form username@verrylongdomainname.org, so we've received some requests to increase this.

Now increased to ~100 chars.
