My suggestion is that you don't set tramp-shell-prompt-pattern,
but that instead you set the prompt.  Tramp sets $TERM to dumb,
and fancy stuff like the stuff above won't work for dumb terminals
anyway, so my suggestion is to do like

if [ x$TERM != xdumb ]; then
        PS1=your.fancy.value.goes.here
else
        PS1='\$ '       #or another simple value
fi

What do you think?
