1 Yes - in the SVN UseSystemPasswordChar and PasswordChar have no effect for
MaskedTextBox (although bugzilla says these properties were fixed for
TextBox, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem)

3 - Yes, the textbox retains focus, but loses the caret.

4 - I've fixed quite a few RTB bugs since 1.2.6, so its likely that these
screens now work (I hope!)

If you don't get round to adding these to bugzilla, please email me the
sample RTF files and I'll raise/fix these.

> The program is small to medium size, but I am willing to write a simpler
> version showing the errors if needed.
> It was written in VB.NET 2008.
> I am testing it on the 1.2.6_1 MonoVM
> The latest Moma is 100% clean, no todos, execptions or missings.
> The code uses inherited forms. For instance the base form is a solid grey
> form that fills the entire screen, has a message to press the space bar to
> continue on a label at the bottom, and closes the form if it detects a space
> bar press. Another form inherits that and adds a rfttext box with
> instructions, another form inherits the grey form and adds a string box for
> input.
> I think #1 and #2 have been previously reported.
> 1)      Masked text box does not mask, so the password is displayed in
> clear text.  The applications is a exam program and after the subject
> reads the instructions, an instructor comes over and types in a password to
> continue with the exam. So the client will certainly see the password as it
> is typed in.
> 2)      The form has a property set to fill the screen. It stays at the
> size it was created at.
> 3)      We can't show a cursor because it would be a distraction. I get
> around that by have a textbox of minimum size. After the form has been
> shown, I set focus to it, and in the textbox leave event, I reset the focus
> to the textbox. This works in windows, but in Linux, the cursor leaves the
> text box. This may be because the form is not maximized.
> 4)      Most instruction screens are blank. I think it is because the text
> is in a rich text box.
> There are probably other issues, but these make it hard to test further.
> I can send anyone the .exe or the source code. I could probably convert
> the code to C# before sending if that would help.
> Thanks,
