Description Luke Macken 2008-12-12 19:03:49 EST
Description of problem:

The "Weak Password" dialog now displays the password itself.  Since the person reading it was the one who typed in the password, showing it to them is unnecessary and a security risk.  Also, this dialog seems to always pop up, regardless of the password strength.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rawhide, 20081212
