You mean you forgot: on Dec 15, you replied:

   Problem Acknowledged.

mode-line-process is not magically used by process primitives AFAIK.
It's the responsability of elisp code that runs subprocesses to setup the
mode-line-process variable if they so wish.

So no, there's guarantee, but I don't think it's a real problem.  After all,
it'd probably be a gud for a minor mode to interfere with the major mode's
use of mode-line-process.
