Assigning to MarkH in case he has a bright idea.  I don't.

The problem is that getpass on Windows is implemented via 
raw Windows console I/O, and console I/O buffers interact 
in strange and undocumented ways with C's stdio buffers.  
I've never found a reliable way to keep them in synch, and 
MS says you can't mix the two, period.  The only workaround 
I know of is to build your own raw_input() workalike out of 
the msvcrt module's console I/O routines (getch(), etc).
