The question then on that #1 is: should the enhancement request be to 
clear the in-memory password only if there's not one saved?  What should 
be the action if there IS one saved?  To edit the account, yes?  At which 
point you're on the same dance as before.  (You still won't 
auto-reconnect, you'll still have that dialog dismissed).

The question on #2 is: is the correct action to disable the field, or have 
it used for the in-memory password only, but not written out to disk?

(Or should I not note a specific fix, and just note the problem and leave 
the correct fix up to the developers?)
