bug#16374: password not hidden in shell when mounting cifs partition

I'm not sure if this is really an Emacs bug, or just a limitation of *shell*

Starting from emacs -Q:
M-x shell
mount ./network-drive
;; (fstab for this drive is:
//<network.location>/<folder>$/     /home/user/network-drive      cifs
noauto,users,user=<my username on the network>,uid=<my local
username>,rw     0       0
;; )

;; I am now prompted for my network password. When I enter it and press
;; return I see this:
Password for <user>@//<network.location>/<folder>$/:  <my password in
plain text>

The point is, the asterisks should be appearing in place of my actual
password. Instead, they appear in addition to my password.

Thanks for your time,
