Yes, I could reproduce it. The problem is, that there is an upper limit
to the length of the $PATH variable, to be checked by

# getconf PATH_MAX /

On my Ubuntu system this is 4096; I guess there is a similar result on
hydra. Until now, Tramp didn't check this limit, and it isn't a problem
but on hydra. I've added a test for this, and Tramp fires a warning, if
the intended $PATH exceeds the limit.

But this isn't satisfactory. Tramp shall raise an error in this
case. But this would result in complete failing tests on hydra involving
Tramp.

Is there a chance, that we could shorten the $PATH in the Makefile for
tests on hydra, to be shorter than 4096 characters? According to what I
see in the Tramp logs, I would say that the following directories aren't
needed for Tramp tests (to be tested, of course):
