Description Ken Crandall 1999-11-12 14:11:50 UTC
When entering the password into Up2Date, it is echoed to the screen as
clear text and not as asterisks or whatever.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-11-15 17:43:59 UTC
This is arguably bad, I agree, but not seriously so.  I have changed it for the
next release.
