Terminal's window menu identifies su shells Apps
In terminal, the Window menu normally shows the list of terminal windows that you have opened.

If you have su'd in any window, then that window has a round bullet next to it in the list. Try it and see!

If you go into the Terminal preferences, scroll all the way over the right and click the activity button, you can add 'su' to the list of commands that the Terminal will ignore.
