During an installation, ports/lang/python24,  I did a

   sudo make install

And was prompted for my password.  I entered it (probably miskeyed it  
as I was leaning over the keyboard from a strange position and got a  
response back of

  stty: unknown mode: doofus

and was prompted again for my password, which I entered more  
carefully the second time and everything proceeded normally.

It's certainly true that I felt like a doofus for mistyping the  
password, but I was surprised to have the confirmed by some peculiar  
stty message.

Enlightenment, beyond calling me a doofus, on this would be appreciated
