I use M-x shell and invoke plink from there. This is on Windows NT.
After typing plink host.domain at the shell prompt,
I am sent to the minibuffer, where problems are already apparent. 
The dots echoing my keyboard entry appear on a second line in the 
minibuffer, then after a couple of keystrokes, they collapse to a single 
line. After the host times out my attempts, it seems I am still prompted 
for a password until I escape. At that point, fragments of my password 
show up in the shell buffer. I can document this behaviour more carefully 
if this is not enough. 

This also affects pscp.

This is not an option for me because my intention is to distribute Emacs
to be run from a DVD, see http://potis.org/software/livedvd .
Thus, the base functionality has to be self-contained and tailored to the 
working environment I am setting up, not to any particular user.
