In a shell buffer, give the command

$ sleep 1; echo -n 'Password: '; read -rs; echo -e "\nREPLY=\"$REPLY\""

Bury the shell buffer while it sleeps.

The mode line prompts Password: with no indication as to why
nor which of several shell buffers and other processes want it.
I'll fix it when I have some free time, hopefully before the new year.
