This change is actually new in 8.1.4.  It was not in 8.1.3, and the
8.1.4 release notes mention it:

	* Fix problem with password prompting on some Win32 systems (Robert
	  Kinberg)

Not sure what more we could do.  Since you are the first person to
notice a problem, we probably had it at the right level of prominence.
