(ITS#6702) slappasswd prompts missing

Full_Name: David Gessel
Version: openldap-sasl-server-2.4.23
OS: FreeBSD 8.1

Submission from: (NULL) (

Attempting to insert a hash of the root pw into slapd.conf with the command:
# slappasswd >> slapd.conf  
yields a blank prompt, that is there is no feedback to prompt the user along the
lines of:
"Enter root password"
"Verify root password"

But entering the root password twice with no feedback (and blank characters for
security, so completely blind) gets through the command successfully.
