Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When executing a command such as this

git pull origin BRANCH-1

and hitting tab (auto complete)

I get a password prompt like so:

git pull origin BRANCH-1Password: 

Then the terminal freezes. The cursor blinks but it would not accept any input from the keyboard. I can't Ctrl+c or enter the password.

The only option is to close down the terminal which is sending me nuts.

What are my options?

Ctrl+J seems to do the trick. It adds a LF allowing me to break the deadlock.
