Geiser+Guile For Remote Connections: "geiser-repl--wait-for-prompt: No p

I'm trying to use Geiser to connect to a guile
process running inside a Guix container.  I want
to be able to use Geiser with different binaries
of Guile.  Within a Guix container, I can have all
the necessary Guile libs I want, so it's desirable
to use the Guile run-time inside the
aforementioned container.

As such, I started guile inside a container (my
intent eventually is to add extra libs to the guix

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
guix shell guile readline guile-colorized \
guile-readline bash --network -- guile --listen=3003
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

From my GNU Emacs, I ran: "M-x geiser-connect";
followed by: "localhost"; and finally "3003".
However, I got this jumbled text:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
^A^Bscheme^A^B^A^B@(^A^B^A^Bguile-user^A^B^A^B)^A^B^A^B^A^B^A^B> ^A^B
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The message logged in my *Messages* buffer is:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Starting Geiser REPL ... [2 times]
geiser-repl--wait-for-prompt: No prompt found!
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I also get the above behaviour when I try to
connect---using Geiser---remotely to my system's

I've ran across different threads that recommend
upgrading to a different Guile
but I don't think that's applicable to me.  Any
one know how to fix the "No prompt found!"  Or
better yet, how would you specify, with Geiser,
what Guile version to use on a per-project basis?

I'm using: guile v3.0.8; geiser "v20220323.2352";
geiser-guile "v20220323.2352"; and GNU Emacs
version 28.1.

(Life is like a pencil that will surely run out,
    but will leave the beautiful writing of life.)
