    I have installed MAILMAN 2.0.5 which uses python2.0 getpass , but
when I run it , the following message
appears :

apolo# ./newlist
Enter the name of the list: asdf
Enter the email of the person running the list: asdf
Warning: Problem with getpass. Passwords may be echoed. <<<------

I search for it at newlist program and It uses getpass like this :

import getpass
        list_pw = getpass.getpass("Initial %s password: " % listname)

What could be wrong... ?

   It's installed on a sun with solaris 2.5.1
