xdm shows a password prompt instead of a login prompt

Since xdm switched to separate login/password window prompts you get a
password prompt after typing in a wrong password, although it should
be a login prompt. This is pretty confusing IMHO. I'm using xdm 1.1.3.

BTW, is it still possible to go back to the combined login/password
window? How can this be done? If ever possible I would prefer to go
back. It would likely also fix this bug.
