Unfortunately, my machine is too fast to interrupt Tramp during loading.
Or I am too old, or too slow; pick whatever you want.

Looks to me like a similar problem as bug#1529 and bug#5448. As already
said there, a clean solution requires a new arrangement of Tramp's
package dependencies. This I would like to take out of Emacs 23.2.

Next days, I'll release Tramp 2.1.18 (this is what is bundled with Emacs
23.2). Afterwards, I'll start working on the pending problems dedicated
for after-the-release. Given, that I'll be offline for 3 weeks (starting
March 20), it will last until mid of April or so.

Best regards, Michael.
