Emacs 23.2 is roughly planned for March. But you know, it's ready when
it's ready when it's ready ...

Oops, I've mixed this with your previous problem.

Your current problem is that Tramp has chosen an inappropriate encoding
mechanism on your remote host:

> STDOUT; print pack(q{u*}, join q{}, <>)' < /etc/passwd 2>/dev/null; echo

I'm a little bit concerned about the ^H chars, they shouldn't be there.

On busybox, there shall be uuencode/uudecode commands (at least my
BusyBox v1.10.2 has them). Could you, please, check, whether they are on
your device?

Unfortunately, your trace was not complete this time, so I could not
check why Tramp has refused to use uuencode/uudecode. Could you, please,
apply "M-x tramp-cleanup-all-connections", and rerun the test? I would
like to see the trace then, as usual.

Best regards, Michael.
