Severity: minor
File: /bin/su

These days the su I start from .xsession has the Password: prompt
jammed up to just "P", with the cursor sitting on top of it. I can
still enter my password and it works, but it looks ugly.

$ pstree -al

  |   `-xdm
  |       `-sh /home/jidanni/.xsession
  |           |-icewm
  |           |-sh /home/jidanni/.xsession
  |           |   `-xterm -class UXTerm -u8 -rv -bg hotpink4 -title
#UTF -name #UTF -e sh -c su
  |           |       `-su
