Comment 4 for bug 532047

So as not to lose this possibly useful snippet: If my password contains a numeral the crash happens as soon as that numeral is typed; otherwise the crash happens when I press Enter. E.g "my2pennies4" causes the crash when I press "2" whereas "letmeinnow" doesn't cause a crash until I press Enter.

I'm wondering if this might be caused by the automatically detected input devices?
