Bug Description

To reproduce install a desktop iso and then at the screen where you enter your full name enter a one word full name then press the down arrow key three times without change the user name or hostname to get to the password field and it will still show like you have selected. even though I am entering in the password.

I took a screenshot of this virtual machine saved on the host I will soon attach.
