Eshell uses `eshell-password-prompt-regexp' for password watching, while
shell-mode uses `comint-password-prompt-regexp'.

I don't know whether it is applicable to use the more simple
`eshell-password-prompt-regexp' in shell-mode. I guess there is a reason
to use `comint-password-prompt-regexp' there.

Why do you oppose to the solution I've proposed, setting "SUDO_PROMPT"
in your .emacs?
