I experienced something similar when I had BATCH defined in the /etc/make.conf 
file. If you also have it set to 'yes' then I would recommend that you remove 

It would be helpful if you supplied the contents of the 'portmanager.log' 
file, as well as the 'pm-020.conf' and 'make.conf' files. I cannot reproduce 
the problem you are having, and I use portmanager on a regular basis.
