Package: cdebconf-newt-udeb
Version: 0.136

Seen during installation in German with German keymap.

During password entry the frontend displays two asterisks if I type a
single accented character like ä or ö using the special keys for those
characters on the German keyboard.
Notable is that the cursor remains on the correct position.

Example:
I type: qwertzöä (on a US keyboard this is: qwerty;')
I see: **********
Cursor is: ^

Main consequence is that things are confusing for the user, especially
when he wants to correct what he's typed. The password does get saved
correctly.

Could be this is not a bug in cdebconf but in newt or something.
