Description of problem:
When you run up2date-config and enter your proxy information, the
password is shown in clear text on the configuration screen. This
would be fine with me if I were our only administrator, but other
people can gain access to my password this way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.enter proxy password
3.view list of settings and see your password
Actual Results: My password is displayed under 26. proxyPassword
Expected Results: It should show asterisks or something.
I've reproduced this error on three machines. I saw the bugzilla
report about this (#6953), but it was closed and it was release 6.1.
