Yes, but your prompt uses escape sequences. It looks like:

address@hidden: ~ $ ^[[K

And the escape sequences contain literal "[" characters. When Tramp
allows "[...]" style prompts, it is confused by those "[" characters. So
you shall convince the remote prompt to get rid of it.

`tramp-shell-prompt-pattern' is intended to be customised. If it works
for you: just do it.

How is your .profile organized? Is it called at the end of a system's
.profile? Or does it source another (system-wide) file?
