Having trouble to print out password line

bash and tcsh tend to work better with jaws going over a remote connection.
Putty does sometimes have the backspace being seen as a control-h.  You have a
meriod of terminal options to fittle with in putty.  Alternatively, you can
install cygwin and ask the sys admin to install the terminal entry for cygwin at
your school.  You will not be able to hit backspace and make it work during an
emacs session or during an sftp session from the school's server to another
server. Cygwin is hard to install with jaws, so use putty if it works for you.
