When using this nightly Emacs build, I noticed that C-x C-f was not
responding correctly to the normal tramp syntax.

After starting up with 'emacs -Q', I did:

 C-x C-f /scp:slc:<RET>

("slc" is the name of my remote host.)

The message area displayed:

File not found and directory write-protected

The buffer showing was named "scp:slc:", so it seemed to think I was
talking about a local file.

Note that when I type C-x C-f in the 26.1 pretest version, the default
directory is "~/", but it is "/" in the nightly. Not sure if that is
significant.

Note that, following instructions, I did M-: (setq tramp-verbose 6)
prior to calling C-x C-f, but there did not seem to be a tramp debug
trace generated. I'm guessing that the problem is happening earlier and
the command is deciding to not invoke tramp at all.

Hmm, yes. Tramp shall be autoloaded.

🙏🙏🙏

Could you pls perform 'C-h v file-name-handler-alist' prior and after
opening your file?

When I do that and press <RET>, I get transient minibuffer output that says:

  Wrong type argument: stringp, (require . elec-pair)

Same thing happens on second <RET>, but third one works — neat!

The C-x C-f behavior is unchanged after this: Still says file not found and brings up a local buffer.

As a second test, does it help to preload Tramp when starting Emacs, as
with 'emacs -Q -l tramp'?

That got tramp to work. Then I see the redisplay problem. :-)
