Oh, boy, this is bad.  I got similar reports previously but didn't
spend too much time on them because I thought it's not Tramp at
fault.  But let me try to change this.

First of all, getting back to Ange-FTP involves setting
file-name-handler-alist to the right value.  The right line is still
in ange-ftp.el, only commented out.  So you want to remove the Tramp
entries from file-name-handler-alist and put in the Ange-FTP entries

Secondly, could you produce a backtrace (loading the *.el files
instead of the *.elc files to avoid bytecode)?  Maybe I can see this
time what's going wrong.
