I however wonder what this has to do with the installer. So we now
have yet another wrongly assigned bug report that will quietly sleep
in the BTS until someone takes care to triage it.

In this case, it is however difficult to reassign as it should
theoretically assigned to everything that prompts for a password
(crypto stuff, login, various display managers, etc, etc.)
