When using this nightly Emacs build, I noticed that C-x C-f was not
responding correctly to the normal tramp syntax.

After starting up with 'emacs -Q', I did:

 C-x C-f /scp:slc:<RET>

("slc" is the name of my remote host.)

The message area displayed:

File not found and directory write-protected

The buffer showing was named "scp:slc:", so it seemed to think I was
talking about a local file.

Note that when I type C-x C-f in the 26.1 pretest version, the default
directory is "~/", but it is "/" in the nightly. Not sure if that is

Note that, following instructions, I did M-: (setq tramp-verbose 6)
prior to calling C-x C-f, but there did not seem to be a tramp debug
trace generated. I'm guessing that the problem is happening earlier and
the command is deciding to not invoke tramp at all.

Hmm, yes. Tramp shall be autoloaded.


Could you pls perform 'C-h v file-name-handler-alist' prior and after
opening your file?

When I do that and press <RET>, I get transient minibuffer output that says:

  Wrong type argument: stringp, (require . elec-pair)

Same thing happens on second <RET>, but third one works — neat!

The C-x C-f behavior is unchanged after this: Still says file not found and brings up a local buffer.

As a second test, does it help to preload Tramp when starting Emacs, as
with 'emacs -Q -l tramp'?

That got tramp to work. Then I see the redisplay problem. :-)
