#1086: passwords use autocompletion from bookmark names
 Reporter:  schrottbottle  |       Owner:  dkocher 
     Type:  defect         |      Status:  new     
 Priority:  normal         |   Milestone:          
Component:  interface      |     Version:  2.7.3   
 Severity:  normal         |    Keywords:  password
 With some passwords there happen strange things in the password-field of
 the login-sheet. A single keystroke results in some form of expansion (so
 instead of one * that is added, several are added at once). This will only
 happen with some letters. For example in my case I see:

 ||a || *************||
 ||d || *********||
 ||e || ***********||
 ||q || ***||

 My guess is, that there is some form of autocompletion active for the
 password field, which takes its suggestions from the names of the
 bookmarks. The same thing happens in the sheet to open a new connection,
 but this time with the field for the username. But here it is trivial to
 see what is happening and how to correct it.
