The implementation of master password code and UI. It's also used for
client certificates and possibly extensions.
Two reasons why most of the MP bugs don't belong in the password manager
a) The MP implementation code/UI aren't in the password manager source
directories. I think the implementation is in PSM.
b) The owners of password manager don't own the master password
implementation and therefore the bugs aren't triaged by the same people.
I'm not saying no MP bugs belong in the password manager component but
even ignoring the ones in the password manager component I think it's clear
that the bugs are fragmented between many components.
