Inconsistent administration password setting process at Greeter
In Tails 3.0.1 (and previous), at Greeter, when setting an administration password the following way, you don't get any error message, but can't get and admin terminal neither:
- go to the admin password part of the Greeter
- in the first field type your password, but wrongly (let's say "possword")
- in the second field type the right one (let's say "password")
You get a notice that it doesn't match
- change the password in the first field to the right one ("password")
You get a notice that it matches
- Start Tails
Can't open/use an admin password.

Still confirmed in Tails 3.4.
It might be that the problem is simply that the Greeter expects us to focus the second field before clicking add? (I have not tested that idea.)
I confirm that everything works correctly when following the procedure described in the ticket and then refocusing the second text field.

Alan hasn't touched this ticket since it was created about 2 years ago and I think that we should unblock it.
Yes, let's make it clear that this one is up for grabs, and could be tackled by any FT member: there's no particular reason why we need to block on Alan here.
