Put a "Q" in front of the numbers when you change/set the password.  The
system will accept it and you don't need to type the "Q" when entering the
password on the signon screen, although you can enter it if you like.  I
came across this years ago when migrating a S/36.  The user profiles and
passwords migrated with numbers as passwords.
