Agree. Although in my testing password can be taken successfully, and I
don't know how to explain why pressing "ENTER" then poll() can get
the pipe_fd event, I do think both authentication thread and main process
uses stdin might have some bad affect.

I'd like to adjust the code a little to move the authentication before poll().
