That by itself might not be a big problem, I think. I have my browser set to cache everything, but this is my personal computer in my house that only I have access to, so it's not so much of a security problem for the password to be sent back in plain text. It could be trouble for a user who sets their browser to cache everything without understanding the security implications, though.
