Heh... yes, thanks. I actually found this buried in the rootsudo documentation page about 2 in the morning (couldn't sleep wondering what I was doing wrong) :

"Your password will not be shown on the screen as you type it, not even as a row of stars (******). It is being entered with each keystroke!"

That is a wee bit confusing to us windows refugees who type with 2 fingers!
