The new Password Quality Estimation in the 1.26 Version has a bug. The estimation confirms always incorrectly a good quality, if the password are given as a reference ( like {REF:P@T:My company Active Directory account}, for example ). In this case the Quality Estimation is calculated on the basis of the text string "{REF:P@T:My company Active Directory account}" and gives a false estimation "very good" ( more then 110 bits ) independent upon the real referred password weakness or maybe its dictionary simplicity.

Way to correct: the Password Quality Estimation has to take in account not a Password field content as a text string, but resolve it to the source PW on the same way as it has been already made by the processing of the Auto-type term {PASSWORD}
