password shown in asterisks (*)

This may be a dumb question, but today I realized that when doing a 'svn
export' my typed password is shown in asterisk:

Password for 'user': ******************

This behaviour is new to me. Typed password invoking 'svn export' was
supposed to not output any character.

I was wondering if this have to do with svn or another thing like PAM
modules or so... I was worried on having a corrupted svn binary after some


If you want freedom, compile the source.
