Yup this is due to this (line 2148):


This should probably be handled in a comint filter where we'd lookup
for `comint-password-prompt-regexp`. But it's a complicated regexp
so it could cause performance issues on long outputs.

Another idea: add such filter but temporarily, whenever comint
detects a password prompt.
