More problem in pre-R5

I observed the following bug in the "more" program in pre-R5:
If I type "/" to do an expression search, then what I type after the "/"
is invisible, like when you type passwords. I can type blindly, and the
search works, but this is kind of annoying.

Does anyone else see this?

I might add that this problem does not appear if I use "less" instead of
"more". I tried several versions of util-linux, the latest being
util-linux-2.9h-9a. The problem stays the same. I haven't seen it in R4.

Any ideas?
