On Windows Phone when you set an Entry control to IsPassword="true" when you start typing in the password you can no longer see the cursor and it appears as though the control loses focus.
This only seems to affect Windows Phone. I have tested on iOS and it works as expected.
I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce the reported behavior.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create Xamarin.Forms(Portable project)
2. Use the following code in App() method.
3. Build and deploy the project in windows emulator.
Observation: When I set the IsPassword property of Entry control to true, I observed that the Entry control doesn't show the cursor.
Note: I am not getting this behavior on android and iOS.

Fixed in of 22.214.171.12492-pre1
Great, I was just coming here again to say I can replicate the bug in UWP.
It is fixed for emulator, but still reproduced on real device (WP 8.1)
Xamarin.Forms version 126.96.36.19905
Actually it is still reproduced on emulator also. 188.8.131.5205
Serj - I've just tried it again on both an emulator and a device in Windows Phone 8.1 and I am not seeing the behavior described in the bug report.
If you're still seeing an issue with this on 184.108.40.20605, could you attach a repro project?
