jolla's onboard console (developer's mode) won't give me enough seconds to fully put in a password. After just a second (or 2 letters) I'm getting some invalid password-statement. I tried to circumvent this by trying different virtual Terminal-KB-settings and to connect a common Bluetooth-HW-keyboard (Logitech K810) ... but connection attempts won't succeed either (timeout) :-/ .... Currently all works well via putty (WLAN) only .... as even the third option on USB-cable plugin (some sort of "USB-developer mode" ) has disappeared since updating to OS !

... phenomenon has disappeared, after I did a factory reset (due to a plaintext password in VKB cache)
