I was not able to reproduce it asking for the password twice, using
and and the commandline commit. Are you experiencing this using a GUI,
or a pluggin changing commit behaviour?

It does ask for the password before asking for the message now.
MutableTree.commit determines the nick to be stored as part of the revision
and passes it to Commit.commit which does a callback to determine the

Maybe it would be possible to read the nick after obtaining the message and
pass it to CommitBuilder.commit
I'm not sure if some GUI's or plugins rely on it being available earlier to
perhaps show it to the user while obtaining the message. So maybe only
populating it later would be an API break.
