SU shows my password at terminal

Sometimes, when I type SU and then start typing my password really fast, 
a few of the keystrokes will be echod to the screen -- usually when the 
system is only under moderate load and I'm not "expecting" it to be 
slow.  It happens in X with gnome-terminal and also sometimes just at 
the console.

It's a real usability hassle.  Suggestions?  other than "expect that, 
and don't do it?"
