I remember having _similar_ troubles when having "complex" prompt patterns on
the SSH'ed box. By complex, I mean: with colors or multilines, for example.
With no special configuration, Tramp can't recognize such prompts. So, the
idea is to try with the minimalistic prompt on the accessed box (such as "$").
