getpass.getpass doesn't enter a newline when the user aborts input with ^C, while input/raw_input does.

This behavior is surprising and can lead to mis-formatting of subsequent output. However, since this behavior exists since 2.7 and applications may have started to rely on it, I'd add a note to the documentation.
