[Wine] ETerm32 Terminal Emulator

I installed Wine from Synaptic and then installed a Windows terminal emulator program called ETerm32. As I understand, mainly, it provides the keyboard translations for a VT320 terminal so I can connect and function on a VMS-based server/application.
Running ETerm32 under Wine, I can connect to the server which displays a Username prompt. After typing the user name and hitting <ENTER>, the program/server prompts for a Password. Instead of waiting for a typed response and hitting <ENTER>, it accepts a blank password automatically without any input. This makes the log in attempt fail.
When the Username prompt reappears (which it normally does on a failed attempt), there is an "OP" already entered for the response. This can be backspaced off. Any other attempt to log in produces the same chain of events.
I have tried changing a setting in the ETerm32 software which defines the KeyCodes as either 7-bit (the default) or 8-bit. Changing this to 8-bit produces a "P" after a failed login, but does not help in allowing the Password to be entered. [I have changed this back to the default of 7-bit.]
I have looked thru the Wine Configuration, but I cannot see anything that would help with a communications-type program. I am not a communications expert, so I may have missed something.
Does anyone have any ideas on why the login process does not stop to allow the entry of a Password? If I can get past this, I think I will be in business.
If it matters, I am running PCLinuxOS2007 on a Dell Inspiron 1720.
