I'm afraid I can't reproduce this.  One possibility is that you are
using a locale where the password prompt is given in a language that
comint-watch-for-password-prompt does not recognize.  This is a known
issue; customize comint-password-prompt-regexp to add the
locale-dependent password prompt(s) to the list of recognized prompts.
