rsync password prompt doesn't capture input and shows password in clear

First, I showed that SSH password prompt works as expected: you can 
input the password such that SSH client can process it, and it will not 
be echoed to the command prompt.

You claimed that you could not reproduce!? While that was the expected 
outcome for SSH. (It is working correctly)

Only then I showed that the same is not true for rsync. When I input a 
password, it will get echoed and also rsync will not process it, since 
standard input somehow goes elsewhere.

I am working on why rsync would behave like that on my end.
