Thanks for looking at this.
I tried wrapping read in stdbuf, but it didn't change anything:
(start-process "my-process" buf "stdbuf" "-o0" "/usr/bin/read" "-p" "enter 
something:")

read -n won't help either, because it can affect the number of chars
"read" reads - while in my example we are just waiting for prompt.

I don't know, and it seems like it should not mingle with this setting
at all (why should it?)

I've CC'ed Thomas, who is the author of these lines (ldap.el line 649),
according to git blame.
