It doesn't double in length, it just looks like it doubles in length. It's a security feature in Windows XP - it displays about 20 or so characters in the password box so that anyone looking over your shoulder etc. won't know how many characters are in your password if they were going to try and hack it or something. Your password won't have changed at all.
