Comment 7 for bug 532047

Lovely, by that I mean I can confirm that with the '2', I experimented
with valid and invalid passwords, the problem is only happening with
the number 2 in the 6th poition of my password.

My crash happens as I type the 2, don't need to hit enter.
If the password is not valid one, then it does not crash either.

So it's a really weird one indeed!
