Hmm... does that mean tramp-sh-handle-file-attributes runs with
*scratch* is its current buffer?  It was *scratch* that you were
typing into when this point jumps happened, right?  It's strange that
Tramp uses the current buffer for its processing, but Michael should

If tramp-sh-handle-file-attributes is not using *scratch*, then we'll
need to find some other code in the functions run in backtrace that
