Sorry, this does not make much sense. I was doing the ssh thing in the
left panel, so, by switching to the "right panel" I meant the panel on the
right. But this is still not correct. What I meant is, if the password
prompt is to be at the bottom of the screen and cover up or partially
cover up the command line, then the password prompt should disappear and
the command line should come back if one switches to the opposite panel.
This combined with the idea that the password prompt should be in a little
box of its own, of course.
So, two modest proposals. Take either one if you want it.
1. Password prompt box appears after the connection box has been filled
out and acted upon, in approximately the same place.
2. Password prompt appears in a small box at the bottom of the window in
which one is doing the connection. Password prompt box disappears when
properly filled out (thereby enabling the connection), or in any of the
circumstances considered normal, in which the ssh connection is to be
Clearly these are small issues. However, I think that to do something like
this might be good for those who have never seen the ssh connection
