Thanks for raising this.  You're concerns are valid, but in the meantime
until someone can change it to https,
just use a temporary password and immediately change it the first time you
log onto Fogbugz - which is a https service.

@all,  If its difficult to add https to it, then perhaps at least a not can
be added to advise using a temporary password.
