Password display problem with ldapmodify (ITS#363)

I am running automatic batch updates using ldapmodify onto an NDS LDAP server.
works great, but to do the update I need to authenticate as the Admin user (root

in unix speak). Well, doing a ps -ef allows anybody to see the password during 
the update process. Have the development team thought of modifying the process 
display to blank out the password. I have seen other applications do this -
is one of them.
