Start eboard and open a detached console. Connect to FICS (possibly other servers as well), and use the detached console for typing your login and password. Your password will then be typed in plain text in the detached console, instead of the stars that appear if you use to console in the main window. I guess this is a bug not a feature? :-) Anyway I use eboard 0.3.2pl1 from the package in debian sid (unstable). (gtk 1.2.10 and imlib 1.9.11 if that's interesting)

I've also attached the DEBUG.eboard from the session.
Please don't hesitate asking for more info if necessary. Btw, I love eboard. Thanks for creating it.

    yikes! I'll fix this as soon as possible (when I get home
    tonight, probably), thanks for reporting.
    (I mostly use an automatic script for login these days, so
    hadn't noticed it when I added the detached consoles).

    fixed on CVS. The fix will be in 0.3.3, which I hope to
    release in a few days.

    Well, you've fixed most of it :-) Still, if you connect to fics, enter your login, press enter, and then open a detached console, your password will still be displayed if you enter it in the detached console. :-)
    Thanks again.

    ok, I'll fix this soon. It's a very weird moment to open a
    new console, but ok. ;-)
