caps lock warning behaviour on 14.04

Asked by Jacques


I wonder if the caps lock warning on password fields behaviour introduced in 2.16 is the one that's expected (at least on 14.04) :
The warning label only appears when you press the caps lock. Once the key released it disappears. You then must press another key (a letter for example) to see the warning logo again. Then it stays. Also if you don't release the caps lock key it stays displayed.
Why can't it be persistent after pressing/releasing the caps lock key the first time?

Is this the "correct" behaviour? Or is my system configuration guilty?
If it is the expected behaviour I must say this can lead to incorrect interpretation for non-IT users, the caps lock warning should be displayed right after the caps lock key is pressed/released.
