I was trying pwsafe (pkg attached) and stumbled over
a weird bug. When compiled with editline, when I do
pwsafe --createdb -f test
the first password prompt echoes the typed characters;
the second one is fine.
When I use GNU readline instead, all passwords are hidden,
as they should be.
Compile pwsafe package. (will be attached to PR)
For comparison, uncomment USE_GNU_READLINE to compile against GNU readline.
I'll also attach kdumps of behaviour with editline and GNU readline.
