and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Hi. I think, I have found a bug considering the view-lossage function. If you 
have typed in 
a password in some buffer (i.e. shell, with the option 
"comint-output-filter-functions" set) 
one can read that password in the view-lossage (C-hl) function.

Yours sincerely,
