[Pkg-chromium-maint] Bug#852529: chromium puts password in plain sight

Package: chromium
Version: 55.0.2883.75-1~deb8u1

Chromium 55 shows the complete password in a login dialog
while it has input focus (see attachment for a sample
using https://heise.de/). *Highly* annoying, esp. when
you are not alone at your desktop.

This is a regression. How comes that Chromium did a major
version upgrade in Jessie at all?
