Thanks Brane,
    That was the missing bit as I can confirm removing tty allows the
password prompt to appear. Now all I need to work around is the Cygwin
emacs problem of NOT having CYGWIN=tty causing the normal exit sequence
ctrl-x ctrl-c to fail to operate...sigh.

    So Geoff if your users can live with (or work around) the emacs
limitation you should be good to go.
