If I'm thinking of the same thing. the GUI password box is a
Mythbuntu-specific addition, i.e. isn't in the MythTV-distributed code.
I don't know why it's not working right with MobaXterm, but as another
workaround you could try manually shutting down the backend first, then
running mythtv-setup.real which is the MythTV-distributed version of
mythtv-setup rather than the Mythbuntu-developed wrapper. That should
mean the GUI password box doesn't appear. Don't forget to manually start
the backend when finished.
