What do you mean by "Fullname not accepted"?  What is the exact error message you are getting?

Comment 2 Robert Lightfoot 2013-04-01 16:21:51 UTC
clarifiction this is in the i386 version the x8664 version works as expected masking passwords and allowing fullname.
No error message,  you press 2 the option for FullName , then enter and it comes right back to print the menu 1thru7 never goes to the enter fullname propmt like the x8664 version does.

Comment 3 Robert Lightfoot 2013-04-03 22:09:49 UTC
I have repeated this test case in qemu-kvm as the original test was done in virtualbox with vmwaregateway and telnet to access the serial console.  The issue does not appear when the host is native linux {centos 6.4 in my case}.  It does appear using the windows tools.  I would not be against closing this bug as it is a corner case and the strict following of the testcase isntructions is successful.
