Hi everyone,
Hi Mathias,

After reinstalling my system, I found out that I couldnt have tramp
working anymore, it hangs right after i enter my password.

Here is what exactly happens : I type in C-x C-f /su:address@hidden:
Here emacs asks for my password, which I provide. It then hangs,
showing the above string in the minibuffer, and after some time :
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell

After i cancel the operation, i have :

Here is what is in the tramp/su address@hidden buffer :

Password: Password:
su: incorrect password

Process *tramp/su address@hidden exited abnormally with code 125

And here is what's in debug tramp/su address@hidden :
It is not the complete debug buffer. For further analysis. I would need
the full Tramp traces (best send as attachment, non-ASCII chars matter!).

If you do not want to show the traces publicly, you could send them to
me off list.

So if anyone has an idea of what might cause this, I've been searching
but couldn't find anything really usefull...
At least the first line of your trace looks very suspicious, a lot of
escape sequences in the prompt.

Best regards, Michael.
