Description of problem:
If your're slow (and unlucky) the password dialog can timeout in the middle

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

I think this bug is already fixed in the version 4.22.

In the version 4.22, driver/lock.c is changed so that each time a key
is pressed 10 percent of the whole time allowed to type a password is added
to the remaining time (pw->ratio) .

I saw that this bug remains in the rpm version 4.21-4, but doesn't seem
to remain in the version 4.22-16.
