in the code in the current CVS, there is this following
line to try to clear out the password:
argv[argcmax - 2] = "";

this in theory should work, but I tried and still saw
my password when I did a `w` in a different screen. so
I'm submitting my trivial hack to read the password in
with getpass(3)...

Thanks!
