Well, TERM=dumb setting is not needed. It is already set, inherited from
the outer environment. I've just cross-checked this.

The EMACS=t setting is much more problematic. It has been thrown away
from Emacs years ago, and it was expected that bash 4.4 honors the
replacement INSIDE_EMACS. Furthermore, it was reported that EMACS=t
settings have damaged other packages. See Emacs bug#20484 for a related

It doesn't seem to be applicable for Tramp. So I'm kind of undecided how
to continue ...

Best regards, Michael.
