Behaviour change in Xorg's xdm between 5.99.5 and 5.99.7

I just installed 5.99.7 (including Xorg) built from yesterday's sources, and noticed something a little odd:

The xdm login widget displays ONLY the "Login:" field, until after an entry is made in that field and the Enter/Return key is pressed. Only after pressing Enter is the "Password:" field displayed. On my other 5.99.5 systems buit from 2008-12-13 sources, both fields are displayed right from the beginning.

Also noticed that Xorg's xdm doesn't display the NetBSD logo. I no longer have a Xfree system available, but I could swear that xdm used to display that cute little devil carrying the NetBSD banner. :)
