I have ZoneDirector 9.13.0.0 build 232. It is configured with TACACS+. TACACS+ server is shrubbery.net tac_plus, with AD backend through PAM on RedHat Linux. I would say that is fairly common setup. TACACS+ is working completely fine in all Cisco devices for all users.

But on ZoneDirector all users who have a space character in their password cannot login. I have tested this and it is a bug in ZoneDirector - space character in password prevents login.

Password like this works (user can login through TACACS+):
P@ssw0rd
Password like this and the user cannot login:
P@s w0rd

The only difference is the space character in the middle of the password.

It is very annoying since we have a long-standing company password policy that encourages the usage of long passphrases and not those difficult and not-so-secure "complex passwords".
