This is now fixed in svn.

I can't reproduce this in the svn code but I don't know what changes we've 
made that would have fixed it.

The fix for #1 was in gnue-forms/src/  The standard field 
handler sets the field value based upon the displayed value in beginEdit.  
This doesn't work with the display is **** :)  Overriding that function in 
the PasswordDisplayHandler class got us around that.

One place to start learning a little about how gnue apps work in the gnue 
common developers guide.  It shows a few of the basic systems most gnue apps 
share.   The online manual is a little better than the one in the last 
release and I will hopefully be adding more this week.  After that it would 
depend upon what parts of gnue interest you the most.

Take Care,
