dell [optiplex] 755 (c2d-e8300, 8gb, amd/ati radeon rv610/radeon hd2400 pro/xt)
testcase: full disk, no encryption, BIOS, no internet

entry of password doesn't leave dots as keys hit (unless I click inside
the password area).  `sddm` is working exactly as expected, except I'd
expect cursor to be inside password area and dots appear if I can type
password (how many keys did I press? no indication).

as noted before, if I purposely click into password box, it's exactly as
I expect.

In real use, I've just ignored this issue, so I can't see dots so should
I be unsure if I hit an incorrect key, I just backspace ~20 times & re-
type password (given without dots I can't see how many characters are

I believe this occurs on many boxes; but I've only recorded on d755-8 &
that would mean video card specific maybe?  (or requires dual-monitors),
but I wonder if it's me ignoring issue..
