I don't know if there is a limitation for the lenght of passphrase in 
pinentry. Maybe Werner know it.
I just tested successfully to change a passphrase with a lenght of 75 
characters. It works.
Maybe you have an other problem with your migration?
What's your error message? Wrong passphrase?
Can you try to migrate a test key with a shorter passphrase to Ggp4win?
