HP SIM 7.5.0 - SNMP v3

I've configured the Java SNMP v3 stack according to the installation manual for SNMP v3 traps and disabled the Microsoft SNMP Trap service. I'm trying to get HP SIM to correctly discover and authenticate to a Cisco Catalyst switch (IOS) using SNMP v3, SHA/AES128/authpriv. Every auth and priv passcode combination I've tried fails to work with SIM, but works fine with other SNMP managers like SnmpB. If I just configure auth and not priv, the same problem occurs. The only auth and/or priv passcodes that work are passcodes with a single letter repeated 8 times (or more) to fill the HP SIM requirement of 8 characters.

Can this be fixed by HP or do I have to switch to a different SNMP Manager that fully supports SNMP v3?
