 Hi @tmatsuur,

 My apologies that this one took so long to receive a reply!

 I've tested against the latest version of WordPress (currently 6.0), and
 it looks like the behavior is the same. When an invalid username is
 entered, the username/email field is cleared, but the field is not cleared
 when an invalid email is entered.

 The [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/6.0/src/wp-
 login.php#L1481 relevant code has also been changed a bit].

 I reviewed the conversation in #9568 where this was originally added (see
 [36617]), and there's no note of this being intentional, so I think making
 the behavior consistent is the right thing to do.
