The wanted behaviour is that if somebody touches your computer and types
anything on the computer, the screen has to be either red or blue.
red indicating a typing attempt of wrong pw and blue meaning that
currently something is being entered.
When you remove a character from a password string, which is not the
last, slock thinks you are still in editing mode (which is true) so
it shows blue.
Now, if you remove the last char, for slock you are like the evil
coworker typing something in but then thinking: shit, there he is
coming! quick, remove the entry.
It's all a security measure so you can see when you go back to your
computer that someone fucked with it.
