Suddenly I see asterisks when typing my password?

Asterisks have begun to appear when I type my password. It did not use to be like this. It seems like random on/off behaviour since a week or so. Mostly off but today on, despite several reboots. Have I touched something I shouldn't?

They're not asterisks. They're tribbles.
