Due to bug#13124, Emacs knows now the password keyword for many
languages. There is a new variable `password-word-equivalents'.

In order to fix *this* bug, that variable is used in
`eshell-password-prompt-regexp'.

Closing the bug, but I'd appreciate if somebody with a localized
password prompt checks it.

Best regards, Michael.
