terminal freezing up? (cygwin)

Ok i realise that im running cygwin which is not quite true linux but for this it shouldnt really matter.

OpenSSL> genrsa -des3 -out server.key 1024
Generating RSA private key, 1024 bit long modulus
e is 65537 (0x10001)
Enter pass phrase for server.key:********
Verifying - Enter pass phrase for server.key:********

OpenSSL> req -key server.key -out server.csr
Enter pass phrase for server.key:********
for somereason even though i have entered the correct passphrase i cant move forward to go on creating the certificate signing request? it just seems to freeze up for me??? any ideas, what i may be doing wrong?

p.s. im a newb so it may be blindingly obvious and ive not seen it.
