Password prompts for remote system echoing and not attaching

New install of latest cygwin (CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW64 1.7.16(0.262/5/3) 2012-07-20
22:55) on a new Windows 7 system. When I do ftp <host>  it prompts for uid, then
prompts for pw (normal).  Problem is, password echoes on the screen ... and then
it hangs and connection is never made.  If I do ftp -s:<script> <host> ... and
the script starts with uid/pw ... it all runs fine. Same with pscp.  With putty,
no problem because putty gets control and prompts for uid/pw itself.  I am
thinking this is a config fat-finger on my part ... but I am out of my depth.
