    So it sounds like the 'old' behaviour. I don't believe it ever showed your login password, just saved passwords for forums etc.

    I was just interested because a few people said this behaviour had changed, which it clearly hasn't for the end user. But maybe it has upstream somewhere.

    Just tried this on fresh Ubuntu 12.04, still shows passwords in clear text with no prompt for 'sudo' password.

    <sigh>

    Epic fail.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove seahorse
    Still annoys me that ubuntu-desktop relies on this weak package though.

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
