Another possibility.  Do you have emacs on the local Ceret machine, or
can you install it?

The way I do remote editing is with ftp.  emacs will automatically use
ftp to read and write the file on the remote machine.  Not only should
it eliminate your problem, but performance should be much better,
since editing is done locally.  And you'll be using your emacs with
your .emacs, not what they happen to install in Sheffield.
