Tramp keeps persistent settings in "~/.emacs.d/tramp". You must either
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
FreeBSD "/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin".

 # which getconf
 # getconf PATH
bash: getconf: command not found
 # echo $0
 # locate getconf
 # `locate getconf` PATH
  # uname -a
FreeBSD mmm9500 4.7-RELEASE-p22 FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-p22 #0: Thu Sep 25 13:28:49 MDT 2008     address@hidden:/usr/home/z/cvs/os/freebsd4/sys/compile/BRIDGE  i386

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!

Best regards, Michael
