Re: pasting a password

Dear bug-gnu-emacs:
The challenge: attempt to paste this password into the w3m password
entry field.

The problem is C-y is just read as a raw character there at the
mini buffer Password: prompt. emacs-w3m-version "1.4.263".

OK, sending to bug-gnu-emacs. emacs-version "22.2.1".
