Cannot reproduce on 2.9.2 or trunk. Any more details?

Did notice that there is a very minor discrepancy between how the JavaScript updates the post status to "Password Protected", but then when the post is updated it reads "Password protected"... patch attached to change to capital if it matters at all.
