mailcrypt exposes passwords


From: wolfgang
Subject: mailcrypt exposes passwords
Date: Fri, 8 Jun 2001 20:45:02 -0700 (PDT)

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i386--netbsd, X toolkit)
 of Thu Jan  4 2001 on capsicum.wsrcc.com
configured using `configure  --with-pop --with-ipv6 --host=i386--netbsd 
--prefix=/usr/pkg'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Use mailcrypt to read encrypted gpg mail.  Then look at the
help-lossage buffer C-H C-L and notice your password revealed.  Nice.
Perhaps emacs needs to develope a dont-record-this switch.
