Thanks for posting this message, I almost forgot about fixing that
issue. So I wrote a fix yesterday and pushed it. It'll be part of the
next Replicant 4.0 images release.

I also checked for similar keylogging on the keyboard, and I can assure
there is no such problem. So basically, what you type should be safe
from Google.
