I update my system today (Kubuntu 16.04) and from now on the mpw command keeps asking my Full Name and the Master Password, but it shows my entire password while I type.

I used to type, for example

mpw -u "Ryan Gosling" amazon.com

and just type the masterpassword without have to worry about it appearing in the terminal.

Could you please help me to at least keep the master password private to eyes behind my back?
