#341: Disk encryption - double entry of password does not lead to warning

 Priority:  minor                            |   Milestone:     
Component:  System Configuration             |     Version:  8.1
 Keywords:  disc encryption, password check  |  
---------------------------------------------+------------------------------
 The installer offers a quick way to chose disc encryption. After that the
 user is asked to enter the password/passphrase twice. However, there is no
 warning displayed when the two are not equal.

 When I deliberately tried it, the installation process broke off later and
 I would believe it is due to the different passwords. However, this
 problem should be identified and signalled to the user at the time s/he
 enters the password/passphrase (similar to how Warden handles the double-
 entered root and user passwords).
