I'm pretty sure that SSH doesn't take a password on the command line for 
obvious reasons, nor am I aware of any env var which will allow it 
either, so a bash read followed by looping seems out of the question, 
although do correct if I'm wrong...

As for the showing up in the processlist problem...

"Gentoo Hardened" baby... private process list is one of the many extra 
protections, only root can see all processes... but then if some has 
root all bets are off anyway...
