Description (partial)

When ssh'ing in to a MATE Collector server (on Linux) from a MacOS terminal/iTerm application, or running this locally on MacOS, then running mate_auth_init from the shell, it's often convenient to cut/paste the passwords and SNMP community strings in to the mate_auth_init prompts. This approach however does not enter the correct copy/pasted password, it truncates the pasted password. 

The workaround is to manually type the passwords, which is prone to errors in complex passwords. See attached text file for example.

MATE mate_auth_init command being executed on local or remote system from MacOS OS.
