hi list, I noticed on my HTC Hermes with latest available WM6 (not 6.1!), that after I entered the password for my WLAN, auto-copletion knows the phrase and suggests my WLAN-password for almost any input-field. Further, the memory for passwordstorage is way too small. I can enter my whole password (auto-completion shows it correctly) but i still can't connect. If I re-enter the settings, I get shown only 17 dots. But this isn't enough for my password. any1 can see the same behavior on his device?
