Thank you for writing this here! Password entry box is not a place for
testing keyboard layout. Maybe this obvious remark should be forwarded
to Anaconda developers?

Pleas don't break unrelated things in UI just to say that some other
bugs are fixed by this change. I really don't like to say it but after
this whole Anaconda rewrite it's still not as usable as it was in F17
and now this "plain password" issue which fixes nothing occurred!
