Re: Eshell password input + C-g breaks Emacs

    Steps to reproduce:
    emacs -f eshell
    sudo -k # To make sure sudo will ask for a password
    sudo -l
    # Password prompt appears

    "Fatal error (11)"
    "Error in echo-area-clear-hook: (void-function nil)"

When I try this, I get a peculiar crash that suggests that
the stack has been clobbered.  This patch seems to fix that problem,
and the test case works ok for me.  Does it work for you
with this patch?
