Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 480258
uses asterisk instead of the password character
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:17:05 EDT
Description of problem:
To hide the password, krb5-auth-dialog appears to explicitly use asterisks, rather than whatever character other GTK apps use to hide the password.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
-> walters. looks like the glade file was regenerated using glade-2 instead of a better tool like gazpacho that doesn't muck this up.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
New upgrade of krb5-auth-dialog was provided as https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/krb5-auth-dialog-0.10-1.fc11, which may affect this bug.
Please retest and let us know, whether you can still reproduce this bug.
I am on krb5-auth-dialog-0.8-4.fc11.i586 and this is fixed already (and is in F-11 for some time; by Matthias in pre-F-11-update).
