P3: Somewhat important
97f4366202d170f8c64df2a9f92d457c69b565cc (qtbase/5.12, 30.9.2018,5.12b1)
When writing text in password field with IME, the text being composed is visible and is also allowed as entry to the password text.
Qt 4.x did not allow non-ascii text to be inserted in password mode, the IME was disabled for the QLineEdit.
Steps to reproduce:
- Run attached sample
- Write text with IME
- EXPECTED: Only the entered ascii letters are accepted
- ACTUAL: Non-ascii letters are accepted, and when composing those non-ascii letters/words (i.e. word being composed out of kanjis in Japanese), the composed word is visible until it has been accepted with enter-key
