Description Dave Malcolm 2004-08-24 21:50:01 EDT
Description of problem:
evolution-connector password dialog displays password as you type,
rather than asterisks

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up an MS Exchange account within Evolution
2. "Enter Password" dialog appears next time you Send/Receive email
3. Try typing into password entry field
Actual results:
Password appears on-screen in plaintext

Expected results:
Asterisks so that the person looking over my shoulder doesn't see it.

Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2004-08-25 13:29:02 EDT
Have tracked this down; it's a API mismatch between connector version
1.5.92 and evolution version 1.5.93; they've added a flag which must
be set to hide the password to e_passwords_get_password (since in
theory this can be used for non-password entries, though it's a bad
API name in that case, if you ask me...)

Should be fixed once I bump connector version to 1.5.93

Fixed now in Rawhide: evolution-connector-1.5.93-1
