Local processes of Emacs inherit the settings of
`process-environment'. One could set environment variables there,
*before* starting the local process. So does `comint-exec-1'.
For Tramp, `process-environment' is not set on the remote host. Tramp
performs "sudo", and *after* getting the interactive shell on the
remote side, it can start setting environment variables, taken from
In your case, passing the *initial* prompt failed already.
