Hey Guix
I've asked on IRC if those bugs were known but apparently no, so herethey are:
- during guided installation with LUKS encryption one is not able to enter password longer then length of field;- in the same field password is shown during typing (lets one see bug above, characters typed after reaching length of field are simply not recorded);
Field with conformation hides typed letters. Due to bug #1 I wasn'table to check if it works properly.

Good catch!
Commit ef250707d3303d58ae00fe8f461701e7fa788d8a fixes it for thepassphrase, the root password, and user passwords.
