      Description

      The bullet character chosen for PasswordField looks a bit smaller than the character MacOS uses, and on my high-resolution screen it is so small it looks like periods. Although this is not a serious problem, I do think that it looks abnormal.

      Moreover, those tiny dots are rendered irregularly, meaning the distance between each bullet is not the same. Please see the attached image for both problems.
