Great.  I've now added the entry.  New version in CVS.

So if I understand you correctly, you just have to append two random
chars to your password, and then it will work, right?

Whee.  I wonder what's going to happen.  It's really weird.

Understood.

Hm.  Does it work to set tramp-password-end-of-line to "xx\n"?  It's
a really really really dirty trick.  But who knows...

Alas, Tramp is not flexible enough to allow different values of
tramp-password-end-of-line for different methods.
