This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.7, X toolkit)
 of 2001-10-23 on rm50
configured using `configure  --prefix=/lsi/soft/misc'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I used an emacs telnet window to change my password on a machine.  The
initial, new, and repeated new passwords were entered, the "passwd"
command was ok with the changes ... but the modeline still had the
"password" prompt visible and was still consuming characters.

I had to do C-x o to go to the mode line and then press C-g to cancel
it.

Oh, I should enter the telnet screen input in case that helps:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
address@hidden 7: passwd
passwd:  Changing password for dortmann
Enter login(NIS) password: 
New password: 
Re-enter new password: 
NIS passwd/attributes changed on egyp
address@hidden 8: 
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't ask why the silly-looking prompt; I don't know.

Recent input:
<up> <down> M-x r e p o r t - e m <tab> <return>
