Taking advantage of the fact that I'm talking to a lot of experts on
using plink with Windows, I'd like to address again Rainer's
problem.  His remote Unix machine has no program which can do base64
encoding, therefore Tramp falls back to uuencode/uudecode for him.
But it seems to be difficult to get uuencode/uudecode working
correctly on Windows.

Rainer has now installed the version of uuencode,
but Tramp utterly fails to check whether it works.  I think the
problem is that Tramp calls uuencode with /dev/null as input and
output, and that fails in some way that I didn't anticipate.  His
Emacs hangs and killing it crashes Windows :-(

I'll upload a new version (2.0.18) of Tramp soon with the latest
fixes, could you please frob tramp-coding-commands such that the
uuencode variants are found and then try it out to see what needs to
be done?

Rainer's Emacs hangs in "Checking local encoding (decoding?) command
for sanity".

Thanks a lot,
