Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:No Copied to github as #:20100


Click on "Add PostGIS table" button
Then create a new connection without saving username nor password. OK.
Connect and add some tables.
Save the project.
Launch DBManager, connect to the previous connection and add again some tables.
Save again the project.
In a text editor, you'll find that the tables added through "Add PostGIS table" don't show the username nor the password while they appear in clear text for those added through DBManager. This shouldn't be.

Seen on QGIS 2.4 (MacOS) and 2.6.1 (Win 8)
