Indeed, I could reproduce this behaviour with 24.3 as well. I did debug
it down to `password-read' of password-cache.el, which is called in both
cases. Don't know, what let's behave that function differently.

And with 24.3.91 / 24.4.50 it doesn't happen anymore, so I'm closing the bug.

Best regards, Michael.
