Bug Description

cracklib-runtime 2.9.2-1build2 amd64

Steps to reproduce:
Add new user through Unity control center.
Set password, click gear icon to generate password. Keep generating a new password.

Some of the system generated passwords have strengths of "Not good enough" even though they look like fine passwords, e.g. "5UG-owjlHuzt" (see screenshot)

Expected:
That password looks like it should be good strength.
