As suspected, Tramp is hanging in an unrecognizable prompt (showing ansi
colors):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; GNU Emacs: 23.4.1 Tramp: 2.1.21-pre -*- mode: outline; -*-
20:27:40.648463 tramp-accept-process-output (10) # 
#$ 
20:27:40.666808 tramp-send-string (10) # exec su - root
20:27:40.680922 tramp-accept-process-output (10) # 
Password: 
20:27:43.066638 tramp-accept-process-output (10) # 

[0;33m( [1;33m~ [0;33m)[1;31m  >[0;31m>[0m 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

... and so on. What happens, if you call from a terminal "exec su - root"?

Does it help, if you unset the prompt in root's .profile?
