Pycharm + getpass library is crashing my machine

Hey all,

I'm running into a peculiar problem where using the getpass library in my python code is crashing my machine. All I'm using at the moment is example code pieces to test the functionality of it. Just looking to hide the password when a user enters it.

Currently running Community Edition 2020.2.1 on Arch Linux Kernel: Linux 5.8.7-arch1-1.

I'll try it on my Ubuntu laptop later to see if the problem exists there.

Any suggestions as to what's happening here?

* running the code outside of Pycharm is fine.

Hi, does the issue happen when you run or debug the code? Does your system completely crash and requires restart? If so, you should get some error code which can hint at the root cause.
