It is not the first time I've noticed that I couldn't choose the 
password of my own when running engine-setup. I'm used to build my 
passsords with "&" and each time I choose this one for the db postgres 
user or the adminb account, engine-setup accept it, but it not usable 
anymore when trying to log on. I 've found the same issuewhen installing 
engine-reports, it was aboslutely impossible to log in the report portal.
When I change this password into an other one without this character, it 
works as expected.
My keyboard is a french one using fr_FR.UTF8 encoding, but I've never 
met any other issue expect this one.
Is "&" bad interpreted or does it act as a separator character?
