Description joerg.skottke 2005-04-21 13:01:52 UTC
How to get there:
- New document
- save
- check to save with password

Problem(s):
The user has to enter the password twice to ensure he typed it correctly the
first time.
We do basic checking for password length, the user has to enter at least five
characters before the ok-button chenges to "enabled". But this test is done on
the first password field.

I guess there is room for enhancement here: E.g. compare passwords while typing
and activate the ok-button as soon as the terms are identical. Other methods
could be used but the one we provide is a little spartanic i think.

liz->FL: this is yours, I guess. It is not a string bug.
