Cannot enter credentials when uploading data to the OSM server

Description (last modified by Don-vip)
This occurs in version 3070 if JOSM needs to ask for your password when uploading data to the OSM server.
When the "Enter Credentials" dialog box pops up, the upload progress dialog comes up at the same time and takes focus away from the former so that the password cannot be entered.
In the past I've always had JOSM not save my password and entered my password each time which is probably why I've been hit by this issue in this version of JOSM.
There is a workaround for it I've discovered. Click on close widget of the progress dialog to close it. The credential dialog is then accessible. Enter your credentials and tick the box for JOSM to save your credentials. It seems that JOSM will then accept your credentials and save them but the upload will not be completed. At this point retry the upload. This seems to complete successfully.
