Hmm. Your prompt appears doubled.

Again, a double prompt. With escape sequences.

And now the prompt is not recognized, because it is "$ $ ". Tramp
looks for the following prompts:

>  tramp-shell-prompt-pattern "^[^#$%>\n]*[#$%>] *\\(_\\[[0-9;]*[a-zA-Z]
> *\\)*"
>  shell-prompt-pattern "^[^#$%>\n]*[#$%>] *"

Looks like you have either a nasty echo, or some special prompt
settings on the remote host.

Usually, Tramp sets the TERM environment variable on the remote host
to "dumb"; you could use it for checking in your init scripts. But
sometimes, it happens too late - I cannot see whether this is the case
for you. So for the first test please disable every setting for the
prompt on the remote host.

Best regards, Michael.
