I've now seen this on another system running 10.2-RELEASE as well. It seems
that the USB keyboard is not properly initialized or is otherwise consistently
in a strange state when the prompt is presented.

As a workaround, whacking backspace once before entering a passphrase seems to
get the keyboard into a better state. That said, it's not a matter of simply
eating a key, as whacking something *other* than backspace evidently puts
something into the queue and results in a bad passphrase.
