su command in *shell* buffer does not work.
su does not ask for the password and exits with "su: Sorry".

/* *shell* buffer (24.4) */
Warning: no access to tty; thus no job control in this shell...
yokohama% su
su: Sorry

su in *shell* buffer works well on emacs-24.3.

/* *shell* buffer (24.3) */
yokohama% su
# exit
