WiCD shows the password


In the template of Wicd, when I am outside the textbox, then everything in the textbox looks like this

******** (actually is was a big dot instead of a *)

But whenever I clicked in the box, the text was shown

mypassword

Is this something common on WiCD? And is there anyway I can fix it?

Thanks in advance.

That is the default behaviour. I looked at the code, it looks like changing line 258 in gtk/gui.py from

Code:
self.key_entry.set_auto_hidden(True)
to

Code:
self.key_entry.set_auto_hidden(False)
should do it (line number wrt version 1.7.0). I didn't try it myself though .


Edit: You many also need to do the same on line 547 of netentry.py:

Code:
box.set_auto_hidden(False)
