Hallo Michael,
Hi Andreas,

sorry continuing so late.

Checked with eshell, which hides the password, displaying just spots.
Eshell uses `eshell-password-prompt-regexp' for password watching, while
shell-mode uses `comint-password-prompt-regexp'.

 From there think it would be worth fixing it at Emacs-shell.
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?

Being not opposed, just think that's not a solution in general.
Emacs should be safe without special configuration.

Anyway, should you close again, I'll not re-open, promised :)
