Description Eduard Bagrov 2009-12-16 14:16:27 UTC
The documentation says that the default value of the property "invisible-char" is expected to be '*'.
But after calling g_object_get() and passing "invisible-char" as a parameter, it returns unicode value 9679 which associates to '●'

The default value is determined at runtime and thus is "incorrectly" documented if you don't happen to run a system where "*" is the default value.
