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
