there is a slight password field bug
or quirk
seems to be catching a few people out

open add account dialog
type test in username
type any password('abcdefg')
alt+tab to another program
alt+tab to jd 'add account dialog'
it has now hashed the password field '*******', go to edit the password field (select at the end of the password field and type '123456'), now the password that's saved is hashchars('*******') + edit('123456')

We can't really allow for editing of password because it's always at 7 char length regardless of what the user typed in! So when user clicks in password field, the hash content should be removed and user enters password at field position 0.

Maybe add do not show again dialog tip or mouse over tooltip in password field when one goes to 'edit' indicating that previous entry has been wiped.

I've seen multiple people caught out by this. http://board.jdownloader.org/showthread.php?t=58861 and IRC and support ticket system
