gdm (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gdm

if at gdm login screen you type the password without pressing enter or double clicking a user the password is shown in clear text in a "filter box".

If you have created only one account you can think that that account is already selected and you just have to type your password. Considering that this is the default behaviour of windows, the focus is already in the password field, it is easy to get confused.
