remove this file before starting emacs, or cleanup the settings by the
command I gave you.
Yes. Tramp falls back to default settings instead of; you shall check,

whether they are sufficient. AFAIK, "getconf PATH" shall return under
# which getconf
# getconf PATH
bash: getconf: command not found
# echo $0
# locate getconf
# `locate getconf` PATH
# uname -a

Tramp sets the PATH on that remote machine to
"/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin", which seems to be reasonable.
Thanks, that explains the situation. The patch for checking
"--color=never" works. But there is also another case, where the
"--dired" argument of ls disturbs Tramp.
I've committed another patch to Tramp's repository, which shall fix
this. Please apply again "M-x tramp-cleanup-all-connections" before
running the test, because there are changed connection properties.
yes! I updated my cvs repo and installed the patched TRAMP! success!
