In a WebCenter Spaces environment with a customized login screen, there is an issue trying to change the password.

Steps to reproduce:

1.  Running IE8 or IE7 on Windows XP SP3.
2.  Click on "Preferences" > Password.
3.  The "Spaces Application Password" appears.
4.  When typing the "Old Password",  the expected asterisk or block circles are not displayed.
     Instead, blank spaces are displayed.

4.  This makes it difficult for users to reset their password.
