bug#25596: 25.1; Password not hidden

From: Rahul Martim Juliato
Subject: bug#25596: 25.1; Password not hidden
Date: Wed, 01 Mar 2017 14:27:15 -0300
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/25.1 (gnu/linux)

So I tested this way:

emacs -Q -f shell

export LC_ALL="C"

sudo ls

And BANG! password is prompted in a hidden way on the minibuffer!
(sudo presents its prompt in english)

So, is comint-password-prompt-regexp bugged? I recall that
eshell works fine. Also, it seems that recognizes sudo OR other stuff
(I'm not the best regex reader by the way).

I also tried on my Debian notebook, and the password for sudo
is prompted in english, so there's no problem there.
