I think make-term is the wrong way to approach it.  make-term does
different things internally than either M-x shell RET or Tramp.

Yep.  It seems this is the same problem that Tramp is also seeing.

Try calling start-process to start a shell, then feed it some input
using process-send-string.  Do you see the same thing?

You could try ending the commands with \n, or with \r, or with \r\n.
Maybe one of them works better than the others.

Not sure what other things to try.  Hm.  Oh, certainly "emacs -q
-no-site-file" is one of the things to try.
Two cafe au lait please, but without milk.
