[Mailman-Users] Python upgrade 'disables passwords'

When I create a new list using bin/newlist I get:
Warning: problem with getpass. Passwords may be echoed.
when I come to the point of entering the initial admin password.
I am not a python expert, so am not sure where to start with resolving this.
