      Description

      When initializing an Accumulo cluster with 'service accumulo-master init', it will hide the entry of the initial root password with asterisks. However, something about the use of 'su' to run this script as the correct user is preventing that from working properly. It will show the password in plaintext, and after the user hits enter a newline is printed and the correct number of asterisks is entered after the fact. Using sudo (or nothing at all) prevents this, but relying on that is undesirable.
